Hello. I'm validating the output of my pages against the W3C validator at
It has brought to my attention that any
input type tags, such as html:text, do not place a closing tag on the html:
<input type="text" name="emailAddress" value="...">
...which obviously fails the validation.
This must be a common problem - what is the workaround for this please?

in HTML, having an <input> tag without an </input> tag is acceptable. You just have to tell the validator which version of HTML you're using.
For example, put the following as the first line of your page:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
and I expect the validator will accept the page.
It is sorta covered in the
