I use jQuery to append an image tag.  The problem is that the closing tag for the image is destroyed!

<img /> becomes <img>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
 $('div').append('<img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f2/Peach_flowers.jpg/287px-Peach_flowers.jpg" alt="" />');
 alert( $('div').html() );
});


</script>
</head>
<body>

<div></div>

</body>
</html>

In HTML the <img> tag has no end tag.

will that still work for you?

Why do you need to close the img?

The document type in my example is XHTML 1.0.

I use this script to create VALID XHTML that users can copy and paste onto websites.

How can I get those closing tags in place?

Change this line to point to the attached js.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
Change to

<script type="text/javascript" src="g.js"></script>

g.js

Your end result is this.

img tag
To obtain that result I edited the ......min.js by removing the "img" parsing function for that tag.

@Hank  What are you trying to achieve here?  Is there a particular reason that you're appending the <img> to a <div> and then displaying the <div>'s contents? Why the intermediate step?

@Selvol  What happens if Hank is using some other code that's relying on jQuery to not have that modification?

If you insist:

    $('div').html(

    $("<img />").attr({
        src: "http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f2/Peach_flowers.jpg/287px-Peach_flowers.jpg",
        alt: ""
    }).get(0).outerHTML + "</img>"

    );

    alert($('div').html());
