Garrett and I had an offline conversation about this because at first I didn't see the issue, but he reminded me that in HTML the input tag officially has no closing tag (sad but true). I don't think it's really a problem in practice, given the huge amount of bad HTML out there that browsers have to compensate for, but we should probably fix this to make Yaws correct in this regard. I'll go ahead and fix it unless someone knows of a good reason not to change it?

Replying to myself, I've gotten some private email stating concerns about changing this, primarily because it would disallow the output from being treated as XHTML or anything else besides strict HTML 4.01. I think that's a valid concern, so perhaps the best course of action really is to just leave it alone.
