After setting up a WordPress site on my new host a couple days ago, I had the urge to actually make the site validate XHTML compliant. I got down to one problem though: closing image tags in blog entries. I logged into my account, went to the edit section, and edited one of my entries that has an image linked. I put a closing tag </img> in there and hit save.
My problem: it seems like WordPress drops the tag (since it does nothing). I tried putting it in there and saving a few times, with no luck. Is there anyway around this? I'd like my blog to stay XHTML compliant, since it came "out of the box" that way.
