yes provided you skip the XML declaration on the first line, include a
space before the closing slashes in empty tags and the documents are served
as text/html and have an htm(l) extension. Not that I think you are

mode you can't use XHML since any XHTML DTD will put IE and Netscape 6 in
Standards Mode. Your HTML 4.01 DTD with a complete URL also triggers
Standards Mode. If you really, really want Quirks mode your only option is
to use the HTML Loose DTD _without_ any URL. Or no DTD at all.
