  Fair enough - but my question was mostly one of curiosity: why doesn't
  FP (any version) simply ask when opening a new document (a) which DOCTYPE
  and (b) which document encoding; defaulting to HTML 4.01 and iso-8859-1 if
  nothing is supplied ?

  That would make many documents created by novice writers immensly more
  robust; and is - after all - such small things to add. Professional authors
  who employ FP (is there such a beast ? ;) would after all know this, but
  many webpages are written by the enthusiasts who are professionals in 
  *other* fields.
