           Summary: Empty system identifier in HTML 4.01 Transitional and
                    Frames doctypes should trigger almost standard mode
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://tc.labs.opera.com/html/parsing/doctype/001.htm
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: webkit at blaut.biz


Take a look on these two doctypes:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "">

They have empty system identifier SET. 

According to HTML5 specification almost standards mode is expected if:
- The system identifier is not missing and the public identifier is set to:
"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN"
- The system identifier is not missing and the public identifier is set to:
"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

So the above two examples should trigger almost standard mode in Webkit. 

Actually they trigger quirks mode in Webkit.
