The text that is italicized / class=note is more vague than what the  
HTML 5 draft prescribes about modes.

The HTML 5 draft prescribes exactly three modes of text/html  
processing. Documents lacking a doctype are not "most likely" to be  
processed in the quirks mode but are processed in it by conforming  
browsers.
