    The <!DOCTYPE> declaration is not an HTML tag; it is an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML the page is written in. In HTML 4.01, the <!DOCTYPE> declaration refers to a DTD, because HTML 4.01 was based on SGML. ... HTML5 is not based on SGML, and therefore does not require a reference to a DTD.

    The <!DOCTYPE> declaration must be the very first thing in your HTML document, before the <html> tag.
    The <!DOCTYPE> declaration is not an HTML tag; it is an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML the page is written in.
    In HTML 4.01, the <!DOCTYPE> declaration refers to a DTD, because HTML 4.01 was based on SGML. The DTD specifies the rules for the markup language, so that the browsers render the content correctly.
    HTML5 is not based on SGML, and therefore does not require a reference to a DTD.

    It is not doctype it is "!DOCTYPE". This is an instruction to the web browser to tell in what version the HTML web page is written.
