--- Comment #1 from Henry Zongaro <zongaro@ca.ibm.com> ---
O'Neil, the first paragraph of section 7.1 states, in part

<<the HTML output method will not output an element differently from the XML
output method unless the element is to be serialized as an HTML element.  An
element node is serialized as an HTML element if:

. the expanded QName of the element has a null namespace URI, regardless of the
value of the requested HTML version, or

. the value of the requested HTML version is 5.0 or greater, and the element
node is in the XHTML namespace.>>

The intention was that, if the value of the version parameter is 4.0, only
elements that have a null namespace URI are recognized as empty elements.  In
the case of Serialization-html-3, the expected serialized result, which I've
copied below, reflects that.  For instance, the br element node is expected to
be serialized as <br/> rather than as <br>.

<serialization-matches><![CDATA[<html
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><body/><area/><base/><br/><col/><embed/><frame/><hr/><img/><input/><isindex/><link/><meta/><param/></body/></html>]]></serialization-matches>


I am, of course, speaking for myself only, not on behalf of the XQuery and XSLT
working groups.
