Overview Description: Composer doesn't insert a DOCTYPE in HTML documents. Tasks to Reproduce: 1. Start Composer. 2. Write something. 3. Choose Debug -> Output HTML and look at the output (or save the document and view it on a text editor). Actual Results: The document begins with a <html> tag. Expected Results: The document should begin with a Formal Public Identifier specifying the HTML version used, such as <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> Builds and Platforms: 2000-01-12-10 (Windows NT 4.0 SP6)

reassign to myself; all platform/os; Setting to M13 since it's related to some other stuff I'm working on. However, it may not make the deadline due to some recent complications.
hey John! If you get ambituous you could add the doctype tag too :-) This bug is related/similar to 22288
move to M14; apparently this won't be quite as easy as the others

M15; this will need to wait for an api from vidur (post beta1)
This lack of a doctype is very serious. Pages from the composer don't validate as HTML right now!
