Description Mark 2011-09-27 15:07:40 UTC
In the documentation for XHTML 1.0 it states that content-type text/html may be used, so long as it adheres to Appendix C (Compatibility Guidelines).  In Appendix C.2 it states that minimized form of tags is to be used for all empty elements.  

The validation comes back as valid with closed empty elements.
