A more complete option is not Perl. Use HTML Tidy which is by w3c's Dave Raggett. I just tested it and it will strip empty tags a well as a doing many other useful things. Get your free copy here http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ or get a Win32 GUI version here http://perso.wanadoo.fr/ablavier/TidyGUI/
