Hi all another simple one I guess I'm just not getting right.

I need jquery to search for any <a href  and if href is empty remove the html <a href=""> </a> but leave anything inside the tag be it text or img

so

<a href="">Text Content</a>
or
<a href=""><img src="img.jpg" /></a>

would become:
Text Content
or
<img src="img.jpg" />

regards
Lee
