You're exactly right.  I am using html as my output.  I want closed tags because I'm trying to be compliant to the emerging standards by using xhtml.  I notice now that I forgot my xmlns which might have something to do with the problem.

Would anyone know how I can specify a DTD for my output using XSL?  That was one thing I couldn't figure out.
