           Summary: [DOMHTMLDocument doctype] always returning nil.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: matt at softchaos.com

Sometime since 418, the implementation of HTMLDocument::doctype was changed to:

DocumentType *HTMLDocument::doctype() const
    // According to a comment in dom_doc.cpp, doctype is null for HTML
    return 0;

Firstly, where is dom_doc.cpp? It doesn't seem a part of WebKit/Core.

What is the comment and why is it deemed correct that doctype should be null
for HTML documents?

Why do I care:

Well, I am writing some code to take a DOM (or portions thereof) and convert it
back into a fairly self-contained HTML file. Without being able to reconstitute
the correct <!DOCTYPE ...> I have no way of ensuring that quirks mode is set
correctly when displaying the resulting html.
