#960 closed Task (fixed)

Change default doctype in the config so it triggers standards mode

I think that it would be better if by default the content in the editor is rendered using standards mode by setting in the fckconfig.js

FCKConfig.DocType = '<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
	"">' ;

and removing the td selectors in fck_editorarea.css

Of course anyone can do these changes in their setup, but I think that setting this ones as defaults might help to uncover some problems related to standards rendering and in the end the behavior of the browsers is much more compatible by using standards mode instead of quirks.

And if anyone uses just the online demo it can get standards rendering instead of quirks.

This is not a DUP of #1659. It is only related to it.

Shouldn't we use the XHTML 1.0 Transitional doctype instead? That's the way we are doing now in the CKEditor prototype.

I don't mind if it is HTML or XHTML as long as by default a doctype that triggers standards mode is used and so it gets the maximum testing and we can forget about the differences in quirks mode.
