Editing a Blogger Template

When I try and replace an XML Blogger template with my own, largely HTML-based template, I get the error message
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "img" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "".

Which is really helpful. Have I woken up in bizarro world where IMG tags are officially outdated? I'm not being a stick-in-the-mud (or perhaps I am), I just don't see why or how I'm being forced to sod around with complicated CSS when an IMG tag is so much simpler. Does anyone have any experience with these new Blogger templates and know what I have to do to make it display a basic layout?

    For elements that have no end tag (like <img>), you must end the tag with a " />" (space, forward slash, greater than sign).

    A proper image tag looks something like
