Hi everybody.

Due to my english (not really good) I'll get straight to the point:

XHTML 1.0 : Transitional DTD

 <tr />
  <td> something </td>
  <td> something else </td>

According to validator.w3.org this IS valid.
I thought that this should be interpreted as (in HTML):

<tr> </tr>
<td> <td>

which i think is invalid.

instead it is interpreted (in netscape and mozilla) and produces the same
output as (in HTML):

  <td> something </td>
  <td> something else </td>

Is something wrong in validator, in netscape and mozilla, or am I missing
something (if that's the case, feel free to ignore me :-)
