I used Xalan-J and got the same changes.  However, looking
at the XSTL spec, <br /> becoming <br> seems like the
correct transformation for html output method.

    The html output method should not output an end-tag for
    empty elements. For HTML 4.0, the empty elements are area,
    base, basefont, br, col, frame, hr, img, input, isindex,
    link, meta and param. For example, an element written as
    <br/> or <br></br> in the stylesheet should be output as

So I suggest the following patch to change output method to
xml.  With this change, the generated files looks correct
XHTML to me.

The reason I didn't commit this is that I'm not familiar
enough with XSLT to know what other results this change
would give us.  Does this look OK to XSLT-literate people?
