    well then try transitional.

    i never understood why they give options. it should always be strict if i understandit correctly.

    i mean what other way is there to code than the right way?

    Why not check the sticky on this?

    And ez4me2c3d, it's quite simple: not everyone is good at Web programming. Thus, easier options must be provided. If you're new to using Web standards, or XHTML specifically in this case, you'd want to use XHTML 1.0 Transitional first because you're still transitioning over to it. Then, when you got everything down, use the more rigorous versions: XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1.

    Heading tags are allowed in all DOCTYPEs, you're likely doing something else wrong.

    You can only use block level elements inside <body>. Block level elements can't reside within inline level elements.
