Microsoft's standard compliant website

Visit the Office Clip Art and Media site and look at its souce code:

<script type="text/JavaScript" language="JavaScript"> <!-- var sBrowser = "IE", sBrowserVer = 6, sCurrentCultureLcid = "1033"; //--> </script> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD html 4.0 Transitional//EN" > <link href="/_Services/Ont/en-US/Ont.css" rel="stylesheet"/><script src="/_Services/Ont/Ont.js" type="text/JavaScript" language="JavaScript"></script> <link href="/_Services/Ont/en-US/Menu.css" rel="stylesheet"/><script src="/_Services/Ont/Menu.js" type="text/JavaScript" language="JavaScript"></script> <html > <HEAD> <TITLE>Microsoft Office Clip Art and Media Home Page</TITLE> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT"> var g_Metrics = "&CTT=77&Origin=ES790000101033"; var fPageLoaded = false; var fIsHomePg=true; </SCRIPT>

Notice anything funny ? <script .. > tag is outside the <!DOCTYPE> tag. And the <link ... > tag is also not in the <head> section too!

I sure would like to see more standards compliant website from Microsoft. :)
