Thanks Todd. Safari still claims to be adding its own shadow content and closing tag, but if the trailing ‘/‘ format is what people are using I’ll go with that.

The trailing slash is not required, at least not in HTML5. I often write it with the slash purely out of habit (which I’m trying to break) but I often see it written without.

Besides, I noticed that Safari strips it out in the Web Inspector.

for closing use “/” inside.
