Hi. I have a question about using the DOCTYPE. I'm currently using the
following:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">

Does the browser refer to
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd to see if the page is
well formed everytime a page is loaded.
Or is it useful only when we validate html.

Thanks!
