Came across this after running urlize on some text that had been through markdown.

In [14]: from django.utils import html

In [15]: html.urlize("<p></p>")
Out[15]: u'<p></p>'   ## That was a surprise 

In [16]: html.urlize("<p></p>")
Out[16]: u'<p> <a href=""></p</a>>'  ## That can't be right

The fact that urlize does not work properly on already-marked-up text is a documented restriction. From: "Note that if urlize is applied to text that already contains HTML markup, things won't work as expected. Apply this filter only to plain text."
