In HTML 5 do empty tags like <link> have to be terminated like <link /> in XHTML or as <link> in HTML 4?

From what I remember they don't have to be, they just allow for it due to the widespread use of XHTML, and allow for the ease of migrating from this DOCTYPE.

HTML 5 can be written with classic HTML syntax or with XHTML syntax, depending on how you send it (as text/html or as application/xml+xhtml). Mind that if you send it as XML you also need to provide the proper namespace.

I saw that but wasn't sure if it was the correct way. It seemed strange mixing HTML with XHTML. Thanks.
