Thank you, Karl, Doug and Andreas for your comments.
I've learned that these ending signs ( />) actually are "ending-tags"  
right inside the opening-tag.
I didn't know that before as I'm still left with a html perspective  
and realize I need to update it to cover also an xhtml perspective.

However, my initial problem was to validate my xhtml file and got  
stuck with an error message that said there was a missing </head> tag  
when there actually was one. Either this is due to further ignorance  
from my part or it might be a bug in the validator.

So, the question remains. Why do I get this error about the </head>  
ending tag?

The element type "head" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</ 
head>".

Regards,
Lars
