Correct the Expected Result, the empty paragraph's html code is '<p><br/></p>'

This is how Firefox sees those nodes (the same is with Opera). By default CKEditor fills empty blocks with &nbsp; to render them correctly.

You can change this behavior when using: http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.fillEmptyBlocks
That way you will have <p></p> insttead of <p>&nbsp;</p>

You can check this when inserting two empty paragraphs in source mode, switching to wysiwyg and then using getData().

If you are wondering why by default this does not work with one paragraph then check this link: http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.ignoreEmptyParagraph
