Hi there,


when i convert html file into xhtml file and in the html file are the
following Doctype declaration

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

I when i am trying to parse this xhtml file in - i get this exception(I
am using JDOM as xml-parser ).Can i tell tidy to make this doctype
definition
w3c conform ?

setDocType("strict");  does nothing
