Actually, it seems just the doctype is enough to make things better
(for *valid* code), right now it seems that some software are able to
choose the parser to use after reading the doctype (if any). I noticed
that with a site I worked with that was easily serialized and shown on
my cell phone, but it couldn't handle other non-XHTML (or
non-XHTML-as-HTML) pages --but I should have checked if their HTML

Interesting... I haven't met too many people that choses to keep
their pages in Quirks mode, actually, you're the first (not sure you
should be proud of that --jk). But I wonder, if you include a doctype
(and your code is valid) how do you preserve the Quirks mode? All the
pages I've seen in your site are in Standard mode.
About your article... the info is useful, not sure about how do you
present it to the readers, but that's just a matter of opinion :)
