We are using an XHTML Transitional doctype in all new pages. We tried
working with a strict doctype but we've got a lot of content developers,
putting pages up in a lot of ways and without support for some of the
presentation attributes and elements that are being eliminated ultimately,
it would have been leftup to us to explain what content developers could use
and not use. Not a pretty picture when you've got 100's of content
developers with 100's of different skilll levels, using a dozen different
tools to create pages within our current brand.
And that's why I never need reminding of why I need to push so hard to move
us to an enterprise-level CMS system and get HTML coding out of the hands of
the content developers.
