Optional Tags in HTML

Jens O. Meiert:

For convenience and in order to allow for additional bits or bytes being saved in your markup, here’s a list of all optional tags according to the HTML 4.01 Strict DTD.

Last week or so I had a conversation on Twitter with Daniel whether you can resign html, head and body tags. Turns out that’s true and there are also some closing tags which are dispensable. Nevertheless I will continue to use all of them.
