However, it is not compulsory to add a doctype to your web page but while making professional websites it helps in rendering the web pages correctly (by the browser), depending on the doctype declaration you made for that particular HTML page.
Doctype declaration helps the browser (eg: chrome or firefox) to understand what version of html are you using for your web pages, and what protocols are to be followed to render these web pages correctly.
The following table shows various doctype versions and their implementation codes:
|HTML 4.01||<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">|
|XHTML||<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">|
