Thanks, Boris,

I knew you will say that :)

The problem is that if I will add something like this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd">

then all popular UAs shows document above differently.

Without doctype declaration they are at least united in how to render this.
Which makes doctype useless in some cases, IMO.

But this is out of scope of course. It is enough if Mozilla will support this 
strictly.
