Remember it's not only important to include the doctype, but to validate the page. Which in my opinion is more important. If your page isn't validated you could have invalid mark up which results in a page not displaying correctly. I don't know if this can be emphasized enough, there's a reason standards compliant code was developed, and everyone who has a problem with it apparently prefers IE.

I think I shall crown him . . . Son of Doctype Nazi Laughing out loud

Or the Valid Code Nazi.

Got ourselves a new Nazi . . . .

Does that mean that he/she's a neo-nazi?

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

interesting article on the WIKI which has considerable bearing on this CSS bidness...at the very least, we can confidently say that IE6 sucked on-purpose

Got ourselves a new Nazi . . . .

Yes if people still need convincing that MS plays a deliberate game, it never ceases to amaze me that some still attribute lack of support to ineptitude and lack of skill, it seems to demonstrate an unbelievable naivety, anyone who has followed the MS story should understand what the game plan is and it isn't as though MS attempt to hide it, there are plenty of statements floating around that hint at how MS feel about the Standards, the W3C and CSS.

A corporation that has achieved the results that MS has is never going to care about following they have the ability to create their own standards. their whole history is about usurping markets, buying out dominating.

This isn't a rant or said with any vitriol (for once) but just as an expression of how obvious the situation is and how transparent MS really are, one could draw parallels to the 1930's.

What disturbs me is that in all likely hood we are in for a period far worse than the browser wars, and that so many believe things are getting better and that the Standards are finely getting a toe hold, I can see how easily that may well fall apart, but then I've never been noted for my shiny optimistic nature Smile

On a more serious note can we take care with too many Doc Type Nazis please, remember DCElliot's thread on the subject recently.

I don't remember DCelliott's post . . . .

However, the word nazi isn't blocked, but the plural is. :?

I'm gonna leave off the Nazi stuff for a bit and just be plain old Pine Laughing out loud
