This should be conditioned on the media type not on the DOCTYPE.
hmm - you're saying to ignore

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
Except for the purposes of validating or expending entities, yes.
(there's no media type in the file, though the linked css files have
media types associated with them)

The type attribute elements says "If you go to this URL, expect the
server to send back content of this media type" so that user agents can
avoid requesting data they don't expect to be able to process. If the
resource is requested, then the HTTP headers sent back by the server
determine what the content is processed as, not the type attribute.

...however, the content isn't HTML4 (and some clients interpret it differently)
