check out this site (BETA!!!) - http://www.primacas.cz/tmp - and look in the top of it. you'll see a "]>" written here...
that's a remain of

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/tr/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd" [<!ATTLIST a target CDATA #IMPLIED>]>

that I use for specifying that I need to use TARGET attribute for <a> tag.

anyone any tip on why are the last two characters of DOCTYPE ignored and how to get rid of it?

I don't see that effect, but I would imagine that its a side effect of using a browser which doesn't support XHTML properly. You are sending the page with the wrong content type, XHTML 1.1 should not be served as text/html, it should be served as application/xhtml+xml and may be served as application/xml.

Frankly, if you "need" to use the target attribute (which you don't unless you are trying to force new windows on users or use frames - both bad ideas), then you should be using HTML 4.01 Transitional (or maybe XHTML 1.0 Transitional while following the Appendix C compatability guidelines).

sorry, the code in question is already gone... but these tips of yours should be the solution... I might just forget the target attribute and work with what I've been given :) you've got 125 points...
