Henri,

The PF working group would like to know what would happen if the URL to in a html DOCTYPE declaration changed for a document being delivered with the MIMETYPE "text/html".  

Would this in anyway affect the rendering of the document?

For example what if the following declaration:

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

was changed to:

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

Would FF or any other browser you know of change the rendering of the document?

Jon
