    would people suggest to use, or doesn't it really make a difference?

    should i use strict or traditional? 1.0, 1.1 or 4.01 ?

    4.01 is HTML not XHTML. I always use strict but to decide what you want to use look at this article.

    You should use HTML 4.01 if you want to be using the riight standard really, since your website isn't an XML file :)

    All the pages I build are valid XHTML 1.1 strict, mainly to make IE less painful to deal with when it comes to CSS. Mind you, I am developing for IE 7 and up, IE 6 is a pain I will NEVER deal with again.
