I've been using:

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

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

But talking to a designer yesterday they said that the current
recommendation is to just us <html> and a reduced html5 doctype.

<!DOCTYPE html>

We don't support older browsers so I'm wondering what issues I need to be
aware of.
