   With "strict" HTML 4.0, it might be different, but the "strict" DTD is
   there just to make Purists happy, and Purists use HTML 1.0 anyway. :-)

Good grief no. That's exactly what purists would _never_ use.
SGML purists don't mind which DTD gets used, so long as the file
validates. Markup purists would never use HTML for authoring anyway :-)
