No. You're thinking of things (to take html-like examples) <br/> and <hr/>
- empty tags. Unlike html (and sgml), xml requires that empty tags be
explicitly closed. i.e. <br></br>. However, since this is ugly, it also
allows a shorthand for this - <br/>

In full SGML (HTML too, in some versions, but there aren't any browsers in
existence that parse this correctly, afaik) you can do 
<title/The Foo Song/

(yes, no closing >) - but XML doesn't have anything like that.
