Actually, that is a complete DOCTYTPE:

But I take it you mean one of the DOCTYPEs in the specification.

No DOCTYPE provides any version information.

For example, the following is not HTML 4.01 Strict:

   <!DOCTYPE foo PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" [
	   <!ELEMENT foo - O ANY>

Why does that page say "valid DTDs", when there are no DTDs on the page?
