According to http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/objects.html#h-13.3  
content is not really required (although I think it should be, just like  
alt="" is) and therefore the syntax being used there is correct although  
it's not compliant with Appendix C of XHTML 1.0. Then again, it was not  
designed to be compatible with that.
