Thanks, I understand about 'should' :)
So if most of my pages are HTML is it better to use HTML 4 or xhtml 1 ? I am
not really using XML at the moment.

SHOULD is not set in stone.

Whether its html 4, or xhtml 1, I suggest using strict.  Transitional 
and/or loose are sloppy (in general).

PHP renders HTML.  the doctype is the same.
