File extensions are irrelevent on the web. On servers a shtml file
extension generally means that the file is server parsed HTML
(i.e. that it is HTML with server directives in it which will be
turned into plain HTML before being sent to the client). Use whatever
Doctype you would normally use (HTML 4.01 Strict is usually a good
choice for new documents).
