IE6 problem - slightly off topic but relevant

I have discovered that including the DTD definition line as the first
line of a page
causes IE6 to create a horizontal scroll bar even if it is not required

Check out www.thad.demon.co.uk/tsr/index.htm

the lower right frame has a horizontal scroll bar - only in ie6
not any earlier ie or netscape

If i remove the first (DTD def'n) line the scroll bar does not appear
equally if i swap over the dtd def'n and the <html lang=en> line
the scroll bar does not appear.

I tried simplyfyning the frame source file
I took everything out except the  DTD, html, head, body and several
<p>testing</p> lines
exactly the same effect - only scroll bar with DTD def'n present

Any one got any ideas suggestions
(pull with microsoft would be wishfuil thinking)
