Is it really A Bad Thing to have <foo></foo> instead of <foo/>? At least
until clients catch up anyway...
most html clients will give you two line breaks for
and just one for <br /> (which is what you want)
so fudging things so that the html will sneak past the html parsers of
legacy browsers isn't as simple as just not using /> syntax you have to
special case each element.
Of course its even worse if yo use a <script> element that has content as
then you have to somehow try to make & and < be correct in both html
(where they must not be quoted) and xhtml (where they must be quoted)
