This does not appear to be proper SGML. I assume that an element of
such type will have a content declaration like:
<!ELEMENT BR - O EMPTY>
Looking into the documentation, I can see the definition of the null
end tag as "/>". Is this why <BR/> is allowed? Clever!
Furthermore, where can I download the a file with the SGML
declaration, Mr. Bosak?
