I need a zero written into empty spans if they are empty, else no change required.

Example:

<span id="empty1"></span> // change to <span id="empty1">0</span>

<span id="empty2">1</span> // no change required

Example fiddle:

Ignore my previous post

Try this,

$('(#empty1,#empty2):empty').text("0");

it should work
Please read the :empty selector at jquery site
http://api.jquery.com/empty-selector/

Hello Duncan,

Doesn't work in my template but this does:

$('#empty1:empty,#empty2:empty').text("0");

Let me know if this will be okay?

$('(#empty1,#empty2):empty').text("0");
 it might depend on version of jquery

1.10.2 is what's on the server and I can't change it to older.

So what works best for 1.10.2 requirements?
