[thelist] <!DOCTYPE> issues

According to common wisdom, you should be using a <!DOCTYPE> declaration at
the beginning of your HTML documents so that the newer browsers render your
code as you expect them to, right?

So why doesn't this work?

http://www.howcheng.com/test.php -- has a doctype declaration, but the
external CSS file isn't read

http://www.howcheng.com/ -- no declaration, but it works fine (as it
should, because the browser is in "backwards-compatible" mode).

Is something wrong with my test page that's causing it to be screwy?

Thanks in advance.
