 From the XML point of view, <a></a> and <a /> are totally equivalent.
There's no way in XSLT to enforce one of these outputs.

A single space is stripped from the stylesheet, so using
   <a name="{$id}"> </a>
won't help.
   <a name="{$id}"><xsl:text> </xsl:text></a>
should do it.

What I don't understand is, why <a name=.../> renders a link. There's no 
href attribute. I've never heard that browsers have a problem with link 

Anyway, hope the xsl:text trick helps.
