    I'm new to design. I'm mostly concerned with coding in XHTML, although I'm noticing a lot of XHTML doctypes are using transitional rather than strict. Is this because you can techinically code 'strictly' while using the transitional doctype? Is there any reason not to use transitional (I don't use any deprecated tags, etc. so I assumed I would just code strict)?

    Everything and more that you will ever need to know about it on this site. Also http://validator.w3.org has some links on the right hand side that goes right through the whole language.

    Transitional is slightly more forgiving in certain areas, but if you follow web-standards you'll find yourself naturaly writing for a strict doc-type anyway most times.

    Generally strict works, sometimes it doesn't and you have to use transitional.

    Strict is cool and the ideal way to code.. but being realistic Tranitional is just as effective and much more forgiving.. Going strict is not going to add any functionality, in fact it takes it away, and adds overhead to your projects. As much as i preach about webstandards I use transitional. After all, its is still a webstandard.
