<! DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN”
In This version we can use all HTML elements and attributes, INCLUDING presentational and deprecated elements (like font). In this version we cal also use The Framesets. The document type declaration for HTML 4.01 Frameset is as follow:
