In the W3C XHTML 1.0 Working Draft, 24 November 1999, the following 
Transitional DocType/DTD is listed:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

After converting my web pages to XHTML, and incorporating the above,  I 
successfully Validated them via the W3C Validator.

The W3C XHTML 1.0 Proposed Recommendation, 10 December 1999, lists the 
following Transitional DocType/DTD: 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/PR-xhtml1-19991210/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

I used this on one of my converted web pages to see if it would validate - it 
did, in fact either of the above DTD's work.

Question: which should I use as a preference?
