I've recently began using Webdeveloper plugin for Firefox and noticed that FUDforum HTML although 100% w3c complaint, still requires the browser to use the slow quirks renderer. This was caused by the absense of the DTD specification in the HTML header.

On the same note I found a slight incompatibility in the forum's CSS that raises an error for W3C validator.

The fixes to both are available in the patch listed below:

I am not including in the standard distro yet as it would cause every who had modified the forum's CSS and/or header re-apply their changes.

Thank you for making this available. I've applied your patch to my forum and it seems to we working great!

It's a pity we don't have a repository of patches and mods that can be installed on top of FUDForum.

Best regards.
