<<    Actually, it did. Netscape 6 uses a doctype-switching mechanism, as
well. Documents that use either a Strict dtd or a Transitional dtd with a
URI will be interpreted in Netscape's "standards" mode; documents that lack
these will be interpreted in "quirks" mode.

Good, except that they threw away their existing code!  Their "quirks" mode
now has quirks of it's own.  They should have kept the code from Netscape 4
and made that the compatibility mode.
