Description:
------------
DOMDocument::createElement() does not add a closing </link> tag with DOMDocument::createElement('link'). It outputs <element> rather than <element></element>.

I am using php-5.3.2-1.fc12.i686 and php-xml-5.3.2-1.fc12.i686 installed using Yellowdog Updater, Modified Package Manager. All other DOM methods tried so far work fine.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
$implementation = new DOMImplementation();
$document = $implementation->createDocument(null, null, $implementation->createDocumentType('html'));
$html = $document->createElement('html');
$head = $document->createElement('head');
$stylesheet = $document->createElement('link');
$title = $document->createElement('title', 'Possible link error');
$body = $document->createElement('body');
$html->setAttribute('xmlns', 'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml');
$stylesheet->setAttribute('href','style.css');
$stylesheet->setAttribute('rel','stylesheet');
$stylesheet->setAttribute('type','text/css');
$document->appendChild($html);
$html->appendChild($head);
$html->appendChild($body);
$head->appendChild($stylesheet);
$head->appendChild($title);
echo $document->saveHTML();

Expected result:
----------------
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>
<title>Possible link error</title>
</head>
<body></body>
</html>

Actual result:
--------------
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<title>Possible link error</title>
</head>
<body></body>
</html>
