+      You should place a DOCTYPE declaration as the very first thing in your
+      HTML document. For example, for a typical <a
+      href="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/">XHTML 1.0</a> document:
+    </p>
+    <pre>
+      &lt;!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
+        "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"&gt;
+      &lt;html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en"&gt;
+        &lt;head&gt;
+          &lt;title&gt;Title&lt;/title&gt;
+        &lt;/head&gt;
+
+        &lt;body&gt;
+          &lt;!-- ... body of document ... --&gt;
+        &lt;/body&gt;
+      &lt;/html&gt;
+    </pre>
+    <p>
+      For XML documents, you may also wish to include an "XML Declaration"
+      even before the DOCTYPE Declaration, but this is not well supported
+      in older browsers. More information about this can be found in the
+      <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/">XHTML 1.0</a> Recommendation.
