That was excactly what I was trying to say in a earlier post, I think I lost my point as I got confused later on...but anyway. That was my excact point...why not just make <br> the opening and closing tag, rather than <br />? And then have double tags be <a></a> and single tags be <br>?

I don't see why all tags need to be closed. In tags like <br> that need to be closed right away anyway, why not just make "<br>" both an opening and closing tag, instead of "<br />"? It serves no purpose.
And BTW: I think it's best to keep HTML as much like it is now as possible. Change is pointless unless it improves things - changing the format of closing tags is odd, and, in the case of some tags, seems pointless.
