    Doctype question


    What is going on in this doctype statement

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">


    specifically this part

    PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    That's the part that defines the XHTML 1.0 Transitional doctype. That is what makes it what it is.
    Can you be more specific about your question?

    Wow. I don't recall if I've ever seen this asked before.

    These explain what the various parts of an HTML (or SGML) doctype mean:
