Nope. HTML 4.01 Transitional. From a View Source on http://www.geeklog.net:

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

Now, if you're referring to what's in CVS, then yes, it is Strict. :-)

Which brings up a flaw in the logic of previous arguments for not 
updating to XHTML. "It will break too many things in existing 
themes/plugins/sites." There are more differences between HTML 4.01 
Transitional and HTML4.01 Strict, than there are between HTML 4.01 
Transitional and XHTML 1.0 Transitional. Going from Transitional to 
Strict restricts the use of presentational markup, but it is allowed in 
XHTML Transitional according to 
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp. So it would make sense to 
go from HTML 4.01 Transitional to XHTML 4.01 Transitional. (Which is 
what exactly what dengen did just over a month ago, but nobody seemed to 
pick up on! Bummer!)
