If there is an "empty" section before section at the same level, and invalid docbook file is published. A docbook section cannot be empty. It must have at least one para element or have subsections. The para element can be empty, it just needs to be there.

It would be great if a "<para/>" could be inserted in these empty sections. A simple workaround is to use ~~ instead of an empty section.

See the attached test.muse and test.xml files. The "Header2 b" section is at the same level as the "Header2 c" section.

The empty "Header1" section is not a problem, because it's not really empty, it has all the Header2 subsections in it.
