This is a frequent problem arising here and elsewhere. It is caused by
people not understanding or simply not knowing about the differences between
HTML and XHTML. This is sadly hardened by some lesser known rules of HTML
which make e.g. "<br/>", "<br/&gt;", "<br>>" and "<br>&gt;" equivalent;
these SGML features are however hardly implemented in any browser, which is
the reason for Appendix C of XHTML 1.0 being workable.
