Generally when a site is not written to a standard from that start it
will contain errors so no Doctype will fit it without the document
being edited. You'll need to pick a suitable version of HTML then fix
the errors that the validator highlights.

Generally speaking, new documents should be written in HTML 4.01
Strict, and old documents should be converted to HTML 4.01
Transitional and from there onto 4.01 Strict.
