[thelist] Vignette = no doctype?

Hi All,

I've been working on a contract to design and code templates that will be
fed into Vignette... I'm at the coding stage and when I asked which doctype
they would be using the response was "we don't use doctypes because we're
using Vignette". Apparently the "programmer" (don't know exactly who it was)
at the other end of the telephone line claimed that you can't specify a
doctype with Vignette. I was a little stumped, and as I've never actually
used Vignette before, I couldn't contradict them. So, my question to all of
you experts out there is - is there any validity to this, or are they just
trying to come up with some excuse not to use doctypes?

While I'm at it, if you've worked with Vignette before, are there any other
weird quirks I should know about it?
