What is the importance of the HTML DOCTYPE?




  • 1 Answer(s)

    The doctype declaration should be the very first thing in an HTML document, before the html tag.

    The doctype declaration is not an HTML tag; it is an instruction to the web browser about what version of the markup language the page is written in.

    The doctype declaration refers to a Document Type Definition (DTD). The DTD specifies the rules for the markup language, so that the browsers can render the content correctly.
