See http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/guidelines.html It did in HTML4 browsers, or at least when we tested it at the time it was reported to work that way - they added an attribute called "/". It only worked for elements declared EMPTY - or, more precisely, hard-wired to be EMPTY - in HTML browsers, so you could not write <p/> and get anything you might have expected. Unless you expected what you got, of course ;-) Best, Liam -- Liam Quin - XML Activity Lead, W3C, http://www.w3.org/People/Quin/ Pictures from old books: http://fromoldbooks.org/ Ankh: irc.sorcery.net irc.gnome.org www.advogato.org
