Hi, guys.

I was just reading the xhtml spec, and looking over the
the three dtds -- strict, transitional, and framesets.

Unfortunately, the spec never seems to say what the difference
is between these three dtds or, more importantly, what 
motivates the need for three.

The headers for all three are identical, too, so it's difficult
to tell them apart. Any chance I could get a few clues as to
when to use one, vs. one of the others?

thanks
eric
