          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

When using XHTML, according to the specification (XHTML1 spec, section 4.3,
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.3) it is required that any element that has
not got EMPTY declared in the DTD should always use the form <tag></tag>, but
testing this, for example with a simple XHTML document containing <div />
passes validation.
