In XSLT 1.0, the only way to generate XHTML is to use the XML output method. That will correctly generate close tags for all elements. Keep in mind, though, that most processors will minimize empty elements when serializing XML output (i.e., <br/> instead of <br></br>). That isn't a problem for most XHTML elements, but it can be an issue if you create a textarea box with no text--it will be serialized as <textarea . . . />, which will cause IE (at least) to choke--it doesn't parse the tag correctly, so all of the XHTML following the textarea box appears as text in the box instead of being rendered by the browser.
