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.
