As J.Pietschmann already wrote on the users ml: it's probably only an 
issue of standard vs. quirks mode. Sending the correct Doctype + 
namespace should make these closed elements working as expected.

How do you want to solve this? Can you influence the serializing of an 
element? The serialization is done by Xalan! And AFAIK Xalan does the 
serialization correct for both HTML (start and end tag) and XHTML 
(closed tag).
