I assume HTML Template is the option you really wanted?
No, the default is always XHTML, and I get the same error message and the same code inserted no matter what blank DW template I select. I've double checked the default setting, because I assumed the same thing, but that isn't the case. Any other things I could check?
Okay, I spoke too soon! The default doc type is XHTML, I see the other template default types now! I had a feeling it would be something so obvious I'm not seeing it. thanks so much!
I see you found the difference between Template Type and DocType in the dialogue box.
