I notice that HTML pages exported from Muse do not have a DOCTYPE in the header. Will this be added in the future or is there a prefered way to add it by hand in either Dreamweaver or Notepad?
Seems like an oversight.
HTML pages created in Muse do include the doctype declaration at the beginning of each page:
This is the doctype used for HTML 5 documents.
Please post a URL for your site if you are certain the pages do not contain a doctype.
Yes, I wasn't very clear in my question, sorry. When I created a page I was expecting to this code:
!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
That is what I am referring to.
Is that code even nessecary?
No, that code isn't necessary because Muse exports HTML5.
The doctype you've posted there is for XHTML Transitional.
Here's more information about the various doctypes: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp
But remember, Muse takes care of the code for you, so you should never need to add a doctype to your pages.
