[thelist] doctype mess up

Hey all,

A lead on my project wants to do this for our docs:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

and use XHTML coding practices. (Which he keeps calling 'xml' 1.0
syntax'). Why - I have no idea.

Besides the obvious reason of the code not validating - and being
stupid - what other problems might this cause? We're coding for IE5+
and NS6+.
