Empty UL tags

for

From: Rachel

We have a Web site that has a dynamically generated
site map. The site map uses nested bulleted lists, to
display two levels of sections.

When a section does not have any child subsections, it
ends up having an empty nested UL in it. This is
because of the way the back-end code is written.

Example:

<ul>
<li>Section name
<ul></ul>
</li>
</ul>

The ideal scenario would be that if a section doesn't
have children, the code wouldn't write a nested UL tag
at all. That way, we wouldn't end up with empty UL
tags. But we don't have the time to change the code.

My question is: will assistive technologies have
trouble with empty, nested UL tags? Will they "trip
up" any assistive technologies?

Thanks, as always, for your help.
