Well done guys. Very impressive!

Do you always use the XHTML 1.0 Transitional Doctype for a project then?

Hi Danny,

thanks for the compliments! We do generally use XHTML 1.0 Transitional, yes. HTML5 isn’t quite ready for public consumption in our eyes yet (but soon, soon). We could go for a strict doctype, and our code would validate in it, but as we can’t always guarantee the output from 3rd party tools it’s safer to stick with transitional. This doesn’t mean the quality of our markup suffers, it’s just pragmatic for the time being.

@robin I know what you mean about 3rd party tools and using a strict doctype. Cheers for the reply.
