      Description

      As per Robert Zeigler's suggestion in TAPESTRY-1263, it would be nice to be able to use HTML 4 doctypes in component templates, and have Tapestry just use the corresponding XHTML doctypes internally (to get around the fact that the HTML DTDs aren't valid XML DTDs). The original doctype should be emitted to the client, however. The W3C spec basically says that HTML 4 + XML = XHTML 1.0, so this shouldn't be a problem.
