I believe that is not a "bug", but instead is the HTML 4.01 and
XHTML 1.0 spec which says that all tags, including empty elements,
must be closed.

Perhaps you might change your "ereg_replace()" to look for
either/both types of tags?

Little progress can be made by merely attempting to repress what is
evil; our great hope lies in developing what is good.
