Either mode should "work" as far as HTML in email clients "works" (PHPTAL's 
XHTML mode is backwards-compatible with text/html parsing). 

In case of e-mails DOCTYPE unfortunately doesn't trigger standards/quirks mode 
reliably, e.g., latest Outlook will completely screw it up no matter which mode 
you choose :(

That's strange. It shouldn't be needed, because multipart e-mails have 
Content-Type header that declares which part is HTML and which is text. Are you 
sure you have headers correct?

I've checked few e-mails in my inbox, and some don't even have DOCTYPE.
