If you want valid Markup, yes.

There's one real good way to find out these kinds of things without
"guessing".  Check out

	http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/

	or

	http://validator.w3.org/


The first one has friendlier, more informative messages, and allows you to
directly input your HTML, upload it from your hard drive, or even validate
an entire site.
