Hello, I am having some doctype trouble. I'm trying to impliment a lightbox effect which requires a doctype of at least: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd
The page currently uses a doctype of <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
I admit I am a little unclear about which doctype to use for which situation, but when I change the doctype to the one that includes the link to loose.dtd, the formatting of my webpage becomes quite odd - I believe this is due to the way stylesheets are applied under different doctypes. What I am trying to determine is if there is a doctype that will give me the best of both worlds. The behavior with the loose.dtd link breaks in both Mozilla and IE 7 (not tested on any other browsers) but everything works like a charm (except the new lightbox stuff) when the loose.dtd part of the doctype is missing.
