An empty <a name="pipo" /> seems to cause havoc on ie and safari browsers, when manipulating a DOM tree through javascript. (e.g. as done in BrushedTemplateTabbedSections)

These empty <a /> are generated by the "ContextualDiffProvider". It cause a Diff.jsp in the BrushedTemplate not to function properly.

The issue is solved when generating <a name="change-1"></a>.

In ContextualDiffProvider.java, change

  private String m_anchorPostIndex   = "\" />";
  private String m_anchorPostIndex   = "\" ><a/>";

Like JanneJalkanen says in BugEmptyMarkupDoesntWorkForBoldAndItalic:

C.3. Element Minimization and Empty Element Content
Given an empty instance of an element whose content model is not EMPTY (for example, an empty title or paragraph) do not use the minimized form (e.g. use <p> </p> and not <p />).

I confirm a similar problem with the default template, the ContextualDiffProvider, Firefox and IE. The fix above is easy to implement. Could it be corrected in CVS for a future build? Thanks.
