Editor - empty em tags remain after clearing the content

Bug report

Not reproducible in IE and Firefox.

Reproduction of the problem

Dojo example.

  1. Run the dojo in Chrome and inspect the Editor's content area in the browser's dev tools.
  2. Focus the content. Select all content (Ctrl + A) and delete it (Del or Backspace)
  3. Note that an empty tag remains.
  4. If you type in text and press Enter the new line will be wrapped in the leftover em tag and the text on the new line will be italic

Current behavior

A leftover em tag remains after clearing the content in Chrome.

Expected/desired behavior

All tags from that were present in the cleared content should be removed.
