It would always help to provide the direct link to the unit in pootle.

right-click on the "Unit #1234567" link and paste the link here.

no <sometag /> is already the same as <sometag></sometag> with that
you'd introduce a closing tag without opening one.

Sorry. I didn't notice that. Usually the ahelp tag has a closing tag.

Yes, while the above is true (<sometag /> already is considered
closed), the specification also states that the empty form "should"
only be used for explicitly marked empty elements, those that never
have content (like <br/>)

"Empty-element tags may be used for any element which has no content,
whether or not it is declared using the keyword EMPTY. For
interoperability, the empty-element tag should be used, and should
only be used, for elements which are declared EMPTY."

in other words pootle can be considered right since <ahelp .. />
should be avoided for interoperability.

Now the "fun" part: that string should have been fixed long time ago with commit

however that fix is wrong in that it should have put the closing tag
after the link.

The translation process optimizes the empty tag to the
self-closing/empty form, so the templates and po files end up with the
"should not use" form..

/me 'll fix that/look for other occurances and update the templates later today.

Thanks for reporting.
