I have made a templates and all my page HTML 4.0 Transitional valid.
After creating templates typo3 generates a proper header:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

but first meta-tag has a trailing slash like for XHTML.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

This tag is created by: config.metaCharset = utf-8

The same problem is with CSS files:
page.includeCSS {
    file1 = fileadmin/css/p.css
    file2 = fileadmin/css/pm.css
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="fileadmin/css/p.css" />
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="fileadmin/css/pm.css" />

The same goes to all othwer meta-tags.

Is there any way to turn this XHTML tag-ends off?
I want my page to be HTML 4.0 Transitional, not XHTML!

Best Regards
