Changing Default Template in FrontPage


From: jeb

I followed directions (found in the Webaim FrontPage Tutorial) to update the
normal.tem file, which sets the default "new_page.htm" that FP uses to
create a default template, to includes correct !DOCTYPE information and
Native Language. The modifications were done in Notepad and were achieved
using the
appropriate upper case and lower case. However, when the new page renders,
it has all of information but has mysteriously changes the words DOCTYPE
into lower case:

<!doctype HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"

<html lang="en-us">

First, I am not sure if this makes any difference and if document
declarations need to be in all caps. If not, no problem. If yes, how
do I keep FrontPage from making this change automatically. BTW, I am using
FrontPage 2002 and had made this modification with FP2000 in the past with
no error occurring.

Many thanks.
