Reporter, see Bug 233093 and Bug 203398, if you are creating XHTML document instead of HTML document.
going back to the original doc itself (http://ccls.sfsu.edu:8081/IndexedView?url=http://hedgehog.sfsu.edu/genes/190.html), the content-type string is Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1 and the <html> tag looks like this: <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> there is no <!DOCTYPE, nor are there <meta http-equiv meta tags.
Kieran, you need to serve your XHTML as application/xhtml+xml for us to respect things like the empty tag syntax. There are several places that google knows that can explain how to make both IE and Mozilla happy with your XHTML (as far as mime types are concerned). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 203398 ***
