For those, who want to know it more exactly
< http://www.kriton.de/CSS/doctype.html >

As I wrote on the page, newer versions of browsers may differ.
That means, especially Safari and Opera might switch to a
*real* standards-compliant mode in newer versions, while older
versions keep in almost-standards mode. Even Henri Sivonen will
not give us an answer.

A bit more topical, but not up-to-date (Opera 8/9 is missing):
< http://hsivonen.iki.fi/doctype/ >



The minimum to switch browsers to Compat1 in (X)HTML is:
<!DOCTYPE html>
