Oh well, despite my initial optimism that Visual Studio 2005 would indicate that Microsoft “get” web standards it would seem that the product only supports three DOCTYPES (DTD), namely legacy (i.e. the same crap that’s output now), XHTML 1.0 Transitional and XHTML 1.1.

Whilst Milan Negovan asks where HTML 4.01 Strict, HTML 4.01 Transitional and XHTML 1.0 Strict fit in, I’d like to know why they didn’t consult the W3C‘s list of recommended DTDs (of which Milan’s missing DTDs are a part). Do take the time to read Milan’s post and subsequent links around the topic and add to your del.icio.us for future reference.
