This is a tracking categoryIt is used to build and maintain lists of pages—primarily for the sake of the lists themselves. They are not part of the encyclopedia's categorization scheme.
|Administrators: Please do not delete this category even if it is empty!|
This category may be empty occasionally or even most of the time.
Pages in this category contain invalid self-closed HTML tags, such as <b/>, <div/>, <span/>, <p/>, and <td/>. (Valid tags defined in the HTML5 specification, like <br/> and <hr/>, do not cause this error.) The behavior of these invalid tags will change soon, to be consistent with the HTML5 specification, so their use in wikitext is deprecated. See phab:T134423 for more details.
Pages are also automatically placed in this category by malformed tags like </center/>, which should usually be changed to </center> (remove the final slash); or by malformed constructs like
<s>...<s/>, which should usually be changed to
<s>...</s> (move the slash from end to beginning of the closing tag).
Some templates include an anchor
|id= parameter. When fixing self-closed
<div id="..."/> and
<span id="..."/> tags that appear immediately before such templates, consider moving the anchor text from the HTML tag to inside the template and removing the now-unneeded tag.
If a given page in this category does not appear to have any invalid self-closed tags, it may be transcluding a page or template that does.

- Some Wikipedia-specific tags are also valid when self-closed, such as <ref name="name" />, <nowiki/>, and <references/>.
