    Question Why not valid html code in outgoing emails?

    I can see that Zimbra 5.x and 6.x (6.0.4) does not produce valid html code for outgoing emails. Why?
    My Thunderbird make sure it's always valid xhtml code that I can verify on The W3C Markup Validation Service.

    Here is a html mail I sent with the only word "test" in it:
    Code:
    <html>
      <head>
        <style type='text/css'>
          p { margin: 0; }
        </style>
      </head>
      <body>
        <div style='font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12pt; color: #000000'>
        test<br>
        </div>
      </body>
    </html>
    The only things missing in this simple code above, is <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> and a title in the head, like <title>subject</title>. After this, it will validate as html 4.01.

    So why ain't Zimbra producing code that follows a standard? It must be a reason for choosing to do like this?
