All XHTML documents are rendered in Standards mode, which seems
logical to me. Why else go to the trouble of using the new, stringent
syntax rules of XHTML if it is not your goal to author to standards?
Anyway, Matthias has this great page about Doctype switching,
which links to this summary table:
One important point that is missing from this table: IE6 goes into
Quirks mode for *any* Doctype if you put a XML declaration on top,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
