My secure website uses in reference to an insecure DTD:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en-gb" lang="en-gb" dir="ltr" >

Open in new window


 Notice how the URL uses http:// instead of https://

 Can a secure DTD be used?

The DOCTYPE shouldn't matter, as it has nothing to do with content on your page, but rather with how the browser should render that content.  Good question.
