CKEditor with disabled ACF cuts off empty A-tag which widely used to create a visual buttons.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open
  2. Click 'Source' button.
  3. Put this code into textarea:

<style> .btn {

background-image:url(; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-position:top right; display:block; width:333px; height:80px;

} </style> <a class="btn" href="" target="_blank"></a>

  1. Switch back to editor and then switch back to source code.
  2. Expected result: A-tag will be there.
  3. Actual result: There is no A-tag at all.

Please help to solve this issue!

Empty links have no semantic value and are invisible from algorithms operating on DOM. Therefore they are stripped and preserving them would create a lot of problems.
