Prototype really really likes a standards-compliant page to work in --  
that means you need a doctype because without one, you fail at the  
first line. This isn't for any reasons of standardista purity, the  
recommendation is there simply because when you mess with the DOM, you  
need to start from a known position in order to get where you're  
expecting to go.
