    Thanks for the quick reply gellyfish.

    Unfortunately, it's that very method that causes the problem.

    The default option in Treebuilder $tree->store_declarations(0); is to not store the declerations. When I run the program this way, the decleration is dropped altogether. When I use $tree->store_declarations(1); the doctype is inserted after the closing body tag.

    Do you have any other suggestions?


      Yes, my point was that the documentation indicates that what you are seeing is a bug and invites patches. To be honest you are probably best doing something like stripping the declaration off the returned HTML and sticking it back on the front yourself.


        I just wanted to ask around before I took that approach. I appreciate the input.
