There are a number of warnings returned from the W3C Validator regarding trailing slashes on void elements, such as slashes at the end of and tags, which are not required. There doesn’t appear to be any way to prevent OJS from adding the trailing slashes on the stylesheets that are inserted by OJS.
Steps I took leading up to the issue
- Feed the website URL into the W3C Validator: https://validator.w3.org/
- Notice the warnings
I am using OJS version 184.108.40.206 (will be upgrading to 220.127.116.11 shortly)
Would it be possible for the core OJS code to be modified to remove the trailing slashes on elements that do not require them? (It would be great to eliminate these messages if possible).
