[MarkLogic Dev General] textarea closing missing

Hi Mike -
Just to make sure we're talking apples and apples, I've attached an html
file containing both forms. So, when you open this file in IE6, you
don't see the closing body and html tags inside the textarea? I.e.,
both textarea boxes look the same (empty) to you?
If so, there must be a config setting somewhere that tells your IE6 to
assume XHTML while mine assumes its normal HTML. I see the end tags
inside the second text area in both IE6 and Firefox 1.5. So both of
these are expecting the HTML version with an end tag.
But, my original question was prompted by curiosity as to what changed
between MLS 3.1 and 3.2 to make it produce the shorthand XHTML version
of an empty TEXTAREA element instead of the HTML version which requires
an end tag.
Thanks for responding.
