That explained it nicely, thank you. The two tags where this happened noticeably were <link> and <img>, and I hadn't used an output instruction, which would explain the problem.

That is not conformant behaviour.

If your output method is HTML and the element type is an HTML element type, then that *is* the expected output because in that case SGML conventions are used, but otherwise a conforming processor would put out the following XML conventions for the default XML output method:


Please check your <xsl:output/> instruction for the use of HTML ... but your report is not at all consistent with my expectations of MSXML and Xalan, both of which should be producing a properly constructed empty element.

If you think you are engaging everything properly, then please post a short (15 line?) complete stylesheet that illustrates your results so that others can run your stylesheet on their system.

I hope this helps.
