Is it compulsory to add "/" after br tag in html.

Whenever I make a Web page and I add "br" tag in it i always forgot to add "/" sign but I don't see any problem because of this.

HTML5 had change a lot of things. Like the slash that you mention. But try not to forget it. It's not a good habit, your code will be ugly to the senior or architect developers that will saw your portfolio...
