Back in the very beginning of this centuary I remember that there was a web browser called "netscape". Apprently it had a bug in it that you had to write all linebreaks like
<br /> and not
<br/> if you decide to use XML compliant HTML.
Ever since then I've almost always respected that rule putting in that extra space between the
r and the /. Unless anybody can think of a reason not to, I'm going to ignore and forget about netscape and the mandatory extra whitespace. Bye bye netscape+XML+Peter!
