I had indeed set to Removing it makes 
redirecting work.

That means the pages at had been the original ones, 
but will be deleted in near future. They had been imported to and here they have got a different doctype. Right?

Our pages had been XHTML with all the differences to HTML. And we tried 
to produce valid pages (including W3C check button). It is not 
impossible to change the pages and it can be done bit by bit while 
reviewing the pages. But the aim should be clear.

Kind regards
