Description

Currently data.xml emits empty elements (elements without content) using start and end tags. The XML spec also allows special empty tags like <foo/>.

I need to serialize XML using such special empty tags because a device, I want to communicate with, does require empty tags. The device is just not able to parse XML messages using start and end tags.

I created a branch on GitHub where I implemented empty tags in the emit function. I'm not familiar how to create a patch. So for now here is the link to the compare view.

As I wrote in my commit message we should discuss, whether a option to the emit function would be a better solution.
