Description Peter Flindt 2011-04-09 16:30:35 UTC
when the variable $wgHtml5=true the doctype is:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">

regarding to W3C and

it should be:
<!DOCTYPE html>

(and IMHO for IE9.0 <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9"> too, but I am not completly sure about this)
And there is a problem with this wgHTML5=true; too. If this value is "true" the edit input field have the font sans-serif.

I'm closing this works for me. <!DOCTYPE html> has been the default since (the as of yet unreleased, but almost out) 1.17
