Hello Dave,

I found another example of Tidy setting an inappropriate XHTML TRANSITIONAL 
doctype:

"A Reformulation of HTML 4 in XML 1.0" [http://www.w3.org/TR/html/] is a 
valid XHTML 1.0 Strict document 
[http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FTR%2Fhtml%2F], 
but Tidy incorrectly recognizes it as Transitional and changes the doctype 
accordingly:

>Tidy (vers 4th August 2000) Parsing console input (stdin)
>
>stdin: Doctype given is "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
>stdin: Document content looks like XHTML 1.0 Transitional
>no warnings or errors were found
