I have a script called in a page that generates a div with "position: fixed" (implemented in explorer even before IE7) but it doesn't work because the page doesn't have a doctype, it ignores the position:fixed.
There is a way to set the doctype with javascript?... even "rough" solutions are accepted ;)
(document.doctype is readonly!)

An example page without a doctype is this
