[Bug 6449] Document Type detection from VERSION attribute


--- Comment #2 from Griff Ruby <ubipetrus@earthlink.net>  2009-01-23 02:25:29 ---
> is this used anywhere? Standardized anywhere?

The DTDs for many versions of HTML, including all four flavors of HTML 2.0,
HTML 3.2, HTML 4.01, and XHTML 1.1 all include this attribute for the HTML
element.  Furthermore, when the attribute VERSION occurs in the HTML element of
a file submitted to the present validator, it already checkes its contents
against the version of HTML, and if there is a mismatch it issues the error
message "value of fixed attribute 'VERSION' not equal to default."
