If you could send a URL where you are seeing the problem, it could help as
well.  I've never seen a DOCTYPE trigger the secure/non-secure mixed content
message in any browser.

Lee and Jonathan: I am almost positive that no external content is being

I just ran through the generated source for the home page (which IE
says is "mixed"), and there were absolutely no HTTP includes, only
external links to pages on other sites. The only actual file being
included from HTTP (and from off-site at all) is the XHTML DTD
declaration in the header:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

This sounds silly to ask, but could a DTD DocType declaration trigger
this "mixed content" message in IE?
