Of course, you are right.  I am just used to Tidy's output, I guess.

Thanks, I now have a patch that does the trick.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
   <empty />
   <empty />
</root>


It appears to work fine on all of our existing XML test cases.  I have 
attached them in a zip file so folks can look them over.  I'd like to get 
some feedback (Björn?) to see if this is what is wanted everywhere.

take it easy,
Charlie
