Q: Is it <em>ever</em> legal to omit the </A> tag?

It has been asserted that the following is legal HTML:

<H1><A NAME="topofdocument">Welcome to the Top of the Document</H1>

I disagree, and believe that the </A> should always be present.
I checked our document, and it would appear that I am correct.
Anyone care to clarify?
