Doesn't matter, as the tag is ended implicitly by the following '<'.
Actually I didn't know that whitespace in between didn't matter.

There're nice little test-cases like this one (yours is the "<ul<li>" part):

  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
  <title/SHORTTAG Test/
  <ul<li>First list item,<>second.</li></>
  <!-- Valid HTML! -->
