an empty tag is a tag that has no body, i.e. nothing between the opening and the closing tag
You can use the short form
<empty-tag />
or the normal form
<empty-tag></empty-tag>

About what I said before, I'm not sure anymore if you were talking about conventional XML empty tag or custom action empty tag
Because if you were talking about the second one, then you are right, a custom action tag that has no body is declared in the TLD file as <bodycontent>empty</bodycontent>
Please tell me...
