I did.  From:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/sgml/dtd.html

<!ELEMENT BR - O EMPTY                 -- forced line break -->
<!ATTLIST BR
  %coreattrs;                          -- id, class, style, title --
  >

So BR has a required open tag, an option closing tag, and no contents.  You
wrote:

<br /> in HTML is equivalent to <br>&gt;

I fail to see how you came to this conclusion based on the DTD.  Can you
explain in detail what led you to this conclusion?

to have a chance of being correct.  My own feeling is
that it is not crazy enough.
