Looks like you are generating HTML, and in HTML that's correct.
In XHTML, it's not correct, and the tag ends with />

So use <xsl:output method="xhtml" />
If you're a decade behind the times and are on XSLT 1 :-), then use
<xsl:output method="xml" /> or (better) accept that you are generating
non-XML output.
