I second that.  Since the output will be generated by Forrest it's of no 
use to put a doctype in the page.  Content and other stuff will also be a 
factor to keep in mind.
I must admit that some things that are discussed in this thread are pretty 
new to me.  I have never worried about doctypes and always used the 
standard HTML transitional.  Maybe I'm in an all new ball game and should 
start worrying now.

>Bert, do you have an ETA?

I'll do my best to have the skin ready by Friday.  I have been at the 
funeral of my father in law today, so things are a bit crazy here.  I have 
to use my spare time to get it done, so it depends on how quickly I can 
migrate my HTML to XSL using the existing XSL. Actually I'm using *all* my 
spare time to get it done at the moment.
