I know, but I just wanted to make it a bit simpler, rather than flooding
him with information he may not completely understand, since he only
appears to be a beginner. If you noticed, I did also mention Almost
Standards mode in Mozilla, but perhaps I should have been a little
clearer, and for that I apologise. However, it is better to just get in
the habbit of using and validating against a strict DOCTYPE; then you
don't have to worry about getting quirks or almost standards mode in any
browser, nor the differences between them.
Looking at it now, he's already using a transitional doctype, which is
acceptable. I should have taken a better look, rather than incorrectly
assuming quirks mode was being triggered.
