Bug Description

Hi,

i ran 'http://www.htmlhelp.com/cgi-bin/validate.cgi?
url=http%3A%2F%2Fv1837.vanager.
de&warnings=yes&input=yes&spider=yes&hidevalid=yes
"
against my local mailman installation and noticed:

- the cgi's do not produce a proper doctype
- the mailinglist templates are no longer html
  conform.

Possible solution:

prepend to all generated pages a DOCTYPE:
---
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//
EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
---
or
----
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01
Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.
dtd">
---

I would prefer strict and move presentation related stuff
to css..
