[ZPT] tal:content on declared-empty HTML elements

I've just commited a change to both Zope 2 and Zope 3 (CVS trunk only)
that raises a TALError when tal:content is used on an element declared
to have an EMPTY content model by the HTML DTD.

I think this should deal with recently raised concerns about TAL
generating bad HTML in a reasonable way; it gives the person changing
the template a heads-up about the problem and "encourages" them to fix
their error.
