Thanks @traq.

But I was wondering, considering that all supported versions of Internet Explorer (including Microsoft Internet Explorer 6) interpret the HTML5 document type as a standards mode document type, and using the HTML5 document type for all webpages that don’t require a different declaration ensures that webpages are presented in the highest available standards mode; why not simply use the HTML5 document type declaration If you want all supported versions of Internet Explorer to open your pages in standards mode, rather than resort to the X-UA-Compatible header meta tag to force this behavior in modern designs?
