    DOCTYPE is a docment type declaration that instructs the web browser about the HTML version used on the page. It is case insensitive and must be the first element of any web page.In HTML5 doctype is defined as <!DOCTYPE html>

    <!DOCTYPE html> is not a declaration Document Type. It is an SGML concept for signaling the mark-up syntax and vocabulary for the mark-up that follows.
