The trailing / on an image element is xhtml, is correct, and indicates
that img is an empty element. Its not part of the image url. It does
not indicate malformed html.

The image doesn't get shown because it seems that toms hardware checks
the refererer. Just typing in the image uri works; embedding it in a
page does not.

I changed it to be a link to the image (in the story on svg.org), and now it works.

The rss feed notifier that updates /Graphics/SVG from svg.org is down;
we are aware of this and will fix it.
