w3.org question

this is a query not about Amaya specifically but
about html spec in general. i know a there are many
who are tuned into the w3.org specs here.

Is there a specified browser reaction for a link
with a null URL.  for example :
<a href="">Blank URL on link</a>

this one fouled up my db to html generator
because MSIE engined browsers display the current directory
while mozilla/opera based ones did the anticipated redisplay
of current page ......  

i have a workaround -- make sure blank url replaced by "?"
but was just wondering if there was any standard out there...
designers struggle when there are many vague spots
in standards that let implementers off the hook ...
