Parsing and missparsing XML

The top of the directory is at


and that file has lines in it like

<catalogRef xlink:title="DASILVA" xlink:href=""http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.DASILVA/thredds.xml"/">http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.DASILVA/thredds.xml"/>

The robot is hitting  urls like


which I am presuming to mean that it does not understand the   '/>' notation to end the tag.

Are we using a non-standard xml notation?   I was just following the example I was given.
