@mgdezigns You still need to show everything up to the body tag.
Also, get rid of your 'keywords' meta tag. No search engine looks at that and, if anything, you'll take a SEO hit for using it.
The "Content-type" meta tag can be removed, too, except if you think people will save your page for offline viewing.
Your doctype actually is OK but not recommended and no one has any reason to use a transitional doctype for new web pages and it shouldn't be used.
The so-called "minimalist HTML 5 dtd" is <!DOCTYPE html> which has nothing to do with HTML5 but it serves the purpose of putting all browsers into standards mode so everyone might as well use it.
