XSLT badness

I've going through templates replacing code like this:

<a name="learner"></a>

With this:

<a name="learner">

If I don't do that, the XSLT processor creates an anchor with no closing tag, breaking the layout. I've really lost some respect for XSLT. It's not keeping up with out design techiques - it's been really hard to use XHTML.

Update: To be fair, I shouldn't have been blaming XSLT, I should have been blaming the outdated version Xalan (the XSLT processor) that we are using. Sorry XSLT, man, it was the stress talking. I still think you're way cool.
