           Summary: All DOCTYPE variants that trigger standards mode pre-
                    HTML5 should continue to trigger standards mode in HTML5
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.m&#229;lform.no/html4-or-html5/
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

This variant of the HTML4 strict DOCTYPE,

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" 
[<!ATTLIST P myattr   CDATA #implied >]>

triggers Strict parsing in pre-HTML5 browsers.

But in Opera 10.5beta, Minefield and Safari 4 it has started to trigger
QuirksMode.

According to Lachlan, this is in line with HTML5: 
http://www.w3.org/mid/4B7BB225.9050908@lachy.id.au

According to Maciej it is not in line with HTML5: 
http://www.w3.org/mid/685C7306-C689-4A04-8987-05670EF3B053@apple.com

This bug requester thinks that it should be made clear that it is not in line
with HTML5. The spec must eventually change so it is clear that it doesn't
trigger QuirksMode.
