That is incorrect. If a document has a proper doctype at the top, it
will display in Standards mode (In IE, Firefox, Safari). Quirks mode
kicks in when there is no doctype, or (I believe) an incorrect or
(Also, the doctype must be the very first thing on the page --
NOTHING comes before it.)
Now, validation errors can do screwy things, so those can certainly
muddle the issue.
