Yes, but for old documents, it's probably best to start from
trying to make them valid HTML 4.01 Transitional first. This
should be easy, if there are just a few errors when using
HTML 3.2; quite possibly some of the errors are caused by the use of 
features that were not included into HTML 3.2 but were added
in HTML 4.

Whether you then move up to HTML 4.01 Strict is up to you, and should 
depend on the nature and purpose of the site, as well as your general 
plans for it and you knowledge about CSS.
