    Correct. If a website is displayed in any version of Internet Explorer, it is not XHTML.

    Even microsoft websites serve an xhtml dtd. It seems everyone does. So everyone is making the mistake of serving "invalid html" as a standard?

    I can see that if I was to start using an html doctype, people would think I was an idiot and non-standard for not using an xhtml doctype.

    I am not sure what to do now.

    I recommend using HTML 4.01 Strict, unless you really need to use XML. Remember that serving XHTML with the correct MIME type means it won't work at all in Internet Explorer (including the upcoming IE8).

    Ok I shall use html strict.4 dtd. But I can tell you people are going to laugh at me when I try and convince them that their xhtml dtds are wrong.

    I didn't read it all. I have been too lazy or busy in the past to read threads fully, usually just scan a couple of posts. But I have found sitepoint forums especially helpful recently so I am going to start examining threads a lot more thoroughly.
