Yeah bro, it got nothing to do with ASP, PHP ...etc
Its XHTML. In HTML, for some tags such as IMG, BR, INPUT ...etc (eg:<img src="image_address">), a closing tag (eg:</img>) is optional, but not required. In XHTML, these tags have to be coded with a slash, without using a closing tag (eg: <img src="image_address" />).
Anyway, welcome bro
