    Which Doc type HTML element to use?


    Hi,

    The previous developer used <!DOCTYPE HTML> at the top of all my site's pages. Google tells me I should be more specific about language. The site is written by a brit (me) but it is aimed at all English speakers and has a .com URL. What is the best element to use to reach all English speakers in terms of SEO? Or does it not really matter?

    Cheers Chris

    <!DOCTYPE HTML> is not mentioned for SEO purpose and i dont think it will affect SEO.
