Description

There are a lot <br/> tags in the WordPress core which should be <br /> tags including one space before forward slash. As W3C specifies http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#C_2 , For tags that are self-closing, the forward slash should have exactly one space preceding it <br />

This feels like refactoring for the sake of refactoring to me: see http://make.wordpress.org/core/2011/03/23/code-refactoring/

We're no longer serving xhtml in the WordPress admin, having switched to HTML5 several versions back; with the work currently going on to modernize various admin components, we'll be moving further in that direction. Changes to validate against an older standard don't serve any purpose.
