comment Why isn't Google Analytics data being recorded?
Do you mean the data isn't showing in analytics? That takes at least a day to start appearing.

comment Which MIME type to compress? and what If I omit the `type` attribute from the HTML?
@rockyraw The server does the gzipping but won't inspect your HTML attributes so, no, removing the 'type' attributes won't affect gzipping but, as stated, HTML5 doesn't require it and browsers have used the default for years.

comment Will a missing <head> tag prevent Google from indexing a WordPress site?
Doesn't matter. Your second paragraph is not true.

@Zistoloen Your statement is still false and the OP talked about validation and the missing head tag.

comment Will a missing <head> tag prevent Google from indexing a WordPress site?
Just noticed you called the <head> a section, which can be confused with a sectioning element. Your statement that a missing head element will cause missing page titles, stylesheets and so on, is false since the head element is optional.

@Zistoloen What does the title tag have to do with anything I said?

@zigojacko See my post and read the spec. The head tag is optional.

A head tag is optional so will not affect anything.

comment How to make content load faster for mobile on a responsive design site?
Wait, what? Maybe I've not been paying attention but I don't think display:none has any affect on downloads.

comment Global UTF-encoding, the right way
@mowgli Well, if you look at the spec, nowhere will you find them ever mentioning using the closing slash, and it's not in any of the examples, except under "void elements". iirc, that is where it says you can do that but it's pointless.

comment Global UTF-encoding, the right way
@mowgli If you read up on it, you'll find you're right. It's now allowed but 1) it's not needed 2) browsers ignore it 3) it doesn't affect anything in any way 4) it only takes up space and data on the wire and therefore 5) is totally useless. Remove it and quit using it.

comment Are there any problems with pages from the same site using different doctypes?
Doctypes do not affect POST data in any way and, to be clear, it only affects the box model interpreted by browsers and not the definition itself but he's using the transitional doctype and this isn't an issue. And, no, this has no affect on SEO.

@Dalibor I don't know what you mean by that. I'll edit my answer if I can in a few minutes to explain further.
