Why the unneccessary closing tags?
Why does CityDesk add such things as a closing Paragraph tag - unless someone can correct me, I believe this is totally unneccessary and has no effect other than to take up more space!
Closing <P> tags is required in later versions of HTML (and, in XHTML, all tags must be closed, in the reverse order they were opened). Better get used to it. ;)
Closing all tags is "required" to be standards compliant, I believe. Some browsers can be very fussy about displaying stuff that is even remotely "non standard".
Well, I've learned something - obviously my HTML 4 education is out of date ;)
Speaking of which, when are you going to close all single tags, like <BR/>?
I would like to be xhtml compliant for version 2.0. That would require a lot more work on our part in generating HTML. Right now we just ask internet explorer to give us a long HTML string. In the future I would like to walk the DOM ourselves and generate nice clean xhtml, but that's a non-trivial project.
