See http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#strict and http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#a_dtd_XHTML-1.0-Transitional 
  .

The URL for the XHTML 1.0 Transitional DTD you've previously used,  
never has been correct or officially recommended. The URL for the  
XHTML 1.0 Transitional DTD always has been (and still is) http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd 
  .
Obviously a typo by you and not a change of the standard.
