ME Hmm -- Again I think it's fine though to have documents that are at once html and xhtml and if some editors need the document type declaration too to straighten out the code for this then it should continue to exist;
is there some reason to outlaw it?

However I want to leave xhtml and html as separate issues from php; php is not a w3c-defined specification but xhtml and xml are, to my understanding.
(I'm sorry I have not had time to look at this in more detail.)
