I usually don't think about it too much and go with:

<!DOCTYPE html>

Is there any reason to use something else?

<!DOCTYPE> is the proper way to do things for HTML5 and should be the only thing you use going forward.

If you are working on legacy systems or editing existing sites you may see things like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

This was the old way to do this, which was stupid.

If you see anything resembling this, ignore it. Just use <!DOCTYPE>, everything else is unsupported at this point.

Doctype stands for Document Type Declaration. It informs the web browser about the type and version of HTML used in building the web document. This helps the browser to handle and load it properly. While the HTML syntax for this statement is somewhat simple, you must note each version of HTML has its own rules.
