Bonjour

je suis surpris que :

<!DOctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
soit OK
alors que 
<!DOctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
n'est pas OK

Pour moi, une des forces du langage HTML etait d'etre insensible a la case
cordialement



In english :
Why the validator is sensible to the case in the first line ?

OK :   <!DOctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
Wrong :<!DOctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 transitional//EN">
or any change of case for what is in-between ""
I strongly dislike this artificial complication

With best regards

Alain COULAIS
