My recommendation, for what it's worth, is to use the HTML 4.01 Strict doctype unless you have a specific reason to use something else (including XHTML). You can search these forums for lots of threads debating whether you should use XHTML now instead of HTML. So far no one has convinced me I should switch to XHTML if all I want to do is display an HTML page. Here are my default first four lines of every HTML page I create:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html lang='en'><head><META HTTP-EQUIV='Content-Type' CONTENT='text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1'>

Thank you for the help. I have an additional question.
I added the code NogDog suggested below. Now I see a few pixels in height of red background color from my table at the bottom of my picture which I didn't have before. Do I just have to play around with HTML to avoid this now, or are some things unavoidable?
Two links within my site to compare and contrast the appearance of the picture are the Home and FAQs pages.
