Please refer to the following Internet Drafts:

<draft-ietf-html-spec-05.txt> - page 12 - "...the end tags of some other 
elements, such as Paragraph ('</P>'), List Item ('</LI>'), Definition Term 
('</DT>'), and Definition Description ('</DD>') elements, may be omitted."

<daft-eitf-html-scpcv3-00.txt> - page 10 - "...Some elements appear as just a 
start tag.  For example to create a line break, you use <BR>.  Additionally, the 
end tags of some other elements (e.g. P, LI, DT, DD) can be omitted as the 
position of the end tag is clearly implied by the context."

Respecfully,
