    When I create a new .aspx page my default doctype is;


    DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">


    However I noticed your demo pages (in this case 'tooltip') you use the doctype;



    DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

    I'm using VS2008, SQL Server 2008 and the latest Telerik controls for ASP.Net AJAX and Silverlight. Should I be changing my doctype to the same one you're using?

    After reading the information on http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/ I certainly think so but thought I better ask and be sure.

    Please let me know and thanks!

    Hello Dave,

    Using a "stricter" definition such as XHTML 1.1 is better in terms of "older" standards being gradually dropped out.
    However, for the time being you can use any of the two - VS 2005 by default uses the less-strict XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
    There should not be a problem with using either one.
    Best wishes,
