That's from the HTML spec.  The XHTML 1.0 spec says;

"Empty elements must either have an end tag or the start tag must end with />"
  -- http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.6

which that example uses.  Moreover, the example uses the
HTML-backwards-compatible " />" (with a preceding space) form of
closure.
