- textual (but not visible)
associated template variable
This variable specifies the DOCTYPE under which you want your website to published.
$doctype:<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd"> $doctype:<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
DOCTYPEs are an advanced topic that will not be covered here. Vine Type recommends keeping the default
$doctypevalue, but provides customization capability for advanced website designers.
The DOCTYPE element specifies the W3C specification that you claim your website supports. Changing the DOCTYPE value can alter the way browsers display your website pages, so alteration of the
$doctypevalue should be made with care and understanding.
