[xsl] delete empty elements

Hi list,

I have XML like this:

	<element id="86">data</element>
	<element id="23"></element>
	<element id="56">moredata</element>
	<element id="89">muchmoredata</element>

And, with help from the FAQ and the list :-), I'm able to sort this in a
balanced two column table. But how can I sort out these empty
<element></element> Tags in my xsl?

<xsl:variable name="t-size" select="count(//element)"/>
<xsl:variable name="half" select="ceiling($t-size div 2)"/>
	<xsl:for-each select="//element[position() &lt;= $half]">
	<xsl:variable name="here" select="position()"/>
			<xsl:value-of select="@id"/>
			<xsl:value-of select="."/>
			<xsl:value-of select="../element[$here+$half]/@id"
				<xsl:when test="../element[$here+$half]">

Regards, Michael
