Yes you are right about the HTML conformance my bad.

But I would only be breaking conformance for XHTML/XML output - which 
I'm not using in any case.
As you point out HTML can "take it or leave it"

Unfortunatly I know some that need to leave it.

The HTML renderer  that comes with Java (jfc) renders the '>' due to the 
'/' being before it.  There may well be others (or older browser 
versions too) that choke on it .

Oh well - output buffers it is then...
