    The page doctype in not supported




      I've ensured that the page doc type is that which is supported,  AND that it's the first line of code.


      I have the following doctype:-


      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" >


      Yet the error in Internet Explorer (only) persists:-

      You cannot edit or duplicate this page.

      Contact your web developer


      I have also tried


      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"  "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">


      The page does not contain framesets.


      This error does not occur in Firefox nor Safari however my client has only Internet Explorer available so this represents quite a pain in the proverbial for both my client and for me.


      Can someone please explain how to resolve ?


      Many thanks
