Subject Empty elements and the XML Serializer
Date Mon, 22 Mar 2004 19:42:17 GMT
Hey folks --

I've been using the XMLSerializer to serialize xhtml (set up in a 
similar way as the stock distribution's root sitemap), but I'm running 
into some problems with the way empty elements are treated, specifically 
the script and textarea tags.  The XMLSerializer will render the empty 
element as:

<textarea />

But according to the Dev Guru XHTML reference's page on the textarea 
element [1], a separate closing tag is mandatory:


Browsers seem to agree with this -- textarea tags and script tags 
rendered without a separate closing tag are just ignored.

What can be done about this sort of inserting spaces between the tags to 
force the closing tag to be rendered?
