Assuming that by "empty node" we mean an element having no child nodes, then the
following modification of the identity transformation does the job:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; version="1.0">
    <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />

    <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
        <xsl:if test="not(self::* and not(node()))">
                <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" />
