Your just "plain wrong" about XHTML.
The proper way to use that tag in XHTML is this way and only this way.

And here is a link you can learn from.

    No, he's right. Allow me to quote from W3C's XHTML™ 1.0 The Extensible HyperText Markup Language (Second Edition) specification, to be precise, section 4.6. Empty Elements:
    Empty elements must either have an end tag or the start tag must end with />. For instance, <br/> or <hr></hr>. See HTML Compatibility Guidelines for information on ways to ensure this is backward compatible with HTML 4 user agents.
    Now, it's true that in the same document, one of the appendices, C.2. Empty Elements recommends using <br />, but that's just a recommendation, empty elements with a open and end tag are allowed.
