Thanks for the help. We've now resolved our issue.

This should work:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<c:set var="layoutDef" value="application"/>
<c:if test="${!currentComplexApplication.complex}">
    <c:set var="layoutDef" value="single"/>
</c:if>
<tiles:insert definition=".${layoutDef}.layout">

Just remove the doctype from the layouts and make sure it's on the top of
each page.
