CSS3 - transitions

Hi

I have created a very simple HTML page with some very simple CSS3 properties in it.

Basically I want the page to act and perform like it does in Mozilla Firefox/Safari - but for some reason Chrome stands out.

Please take a look at http://bitspand.dk/csstest.html

When loading the page in these browsers - this is what happens:

Safari, Firefox: Loading the page shows no animation. Only when I hover the mouse over the black area with the text, then a transition comes alive - just like I want it.

Chrome: Loading the page starts with an animation - where the black area slides in from left to bottom, and then waits for the user to hover their mouse over the black area.

I DON'T WANT THE ANIMATION WHEN THE PAGE LOADS :(

Here is my HTML:
<!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">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<link href="css/csstest.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div class="transition">
<div class="content">
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
<div class="contentTXT">Halloje - dette er en test</div>
</div>
</div>

</body>
</html>

Here is my CSS code:
@charset "utf-8";
/* CSS Document */

.transition {
	z-index: 1;
	background-color: #ffffff;
	background-image:url(../images/CRW_2063.jpg);
	float: left;
	height: 450px;
	width: 700px;
	position: relative;
	overflow:hidden;
}

.content {
	z-index: 2;
	position: relative;
	height: 450px;
	width: 700px;
	top: 350px;
	background-color: #000;
	opacity: 0.6;
	filter: alpha(opacity = 60);
	overflow: hidden;
	-webkit-transition: all 1s linear 0.5s;
	-moz-transition: all 1s linear 0.5s;
	-ms-transition: all 1s linear 0.5s;
	-o-transition: all 1s linear 0.5s;
	transition: all 1s linear 0.5s;
}

.contentTXT {
	position:relative;
	float:left;
	width:700px;
	height:50px;
	font-family: Arial;
	font-size: 30px;
	font-color: #FFF;
	z-index: 3;
	text-align: center;
	vertical-align: central;
	color: #FFF;
}
.content:hover {
	top: 0px;
	bottom: 0px;
}

try using the html5 doctype and see if that helps.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<link href="css/csstest.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

It worked!

Why did it work?

Kyle HamiltonData ScientistCommented:
transitions were introduced in CSS3, which was introduced around the same time as HTML 5. XHTML doesn't fully understand all the CSS3 rules.
