PowerCMS 1.0.2 and XHTML 1.0

PowerCMS 1.0.2 and XHTML 1.0

I have noticed that when I enter content that contains self closing tags like <br />, or <img />, the HTML editor changes those all to the HTML4 form, i.e., <br>, or <img>. Thus, my pages do not validate in XHTML doctypes. Is there a way around this?

I can not see a setting that does this in HTMLEditor, but have you tried changing the Document Type? Although i don't think that is going to solve this issue.

Do you mean that I should change the document type on the page itself (not a realistic option), or in the contents_update_ContentValue1.js/contents_insert_ContentValue1.js files?

FCKConfig.DocType = '<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">';

No - I haven't tried changing either of those.

Yeah, i meant the DocType in the js file. But i just tried and it does not seem to change how the Editor is acting. I also tried changing various settings in the HTMLEditor config files but i keep getting the same results. This seems to be a core functionality of the FCKEditor that we might not be able to change. I will check the FCKEditor forums to see if such issue was brought up.
