In this page for example I use lots of self-closing <td/>s. When I declare the doctype to be HTML5 the validator says:
  Self-closing syntax (/>) used on a non-void HTML element. Ignoring the slash and treating as a start tag.
I cannot see anything wrong with <td/>. Please tell the validator to stop rejecting it.
