Subject: twill bug - twill doesnt like <br/>

Hi, we are using twill-0.9-py for testing django applications. We came 
across this bug this afternoon, my colleague said he has stubled upon it 
some time ago too. It is basically a problem with parsing <br/> as 
opposed to <br />.

We were getting a GET request without any parameters instead of POST 
with expected parameters. It started working as expected as soon as we 
replaced <br/> with <br />. Here is a fragment of the template for the page.

      <br />

      <form method="POST" action="{% url purchase %}">
          <table id="features-table">
                <td class="small-heading">Qty.</td>
          {% for feature, count in allFeatures %}
              <td><input type="text" name="{{feature.shortName}}" 
value="{{count}}" size="1" /></td>
          {% endfor %}
          <input type="image" src="/images/buy-commercial.png" alt="Buy 
Resolver One" name="buy" id="buy-commercial" />
