Yeah, 4DOM will do that. A null doctype is added at parse-time, for some 
reason.

You can throw the doctype node out after parsing or before printing:

   if document.doctype is not None:
     document.removeChild(document.doctype)

or use one of the other DOM libraries that does not exhibit this behaviour.
