Default How to create end tag on empty elements

For some elements in HTML end tags are required like </script> and </a> when I create an element with the <xsl:element> tag my newly created element always ends the first tag when the element is empty Like <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" /> and
<a href="test.html" />
Is there a way that <xsl:element> doesn't close the first tag but adds a closing tag. like
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" ></script> without having to put some dummy comment or so inside the element?

If you use

<xsl:output method="html"/>

then this should all be taken care of automatically.
