When you make a content category table link to an empty category, by default a "This Category is Currently Empty" message will display (or the equivalent in another language). You can eliminate or modify this message by editing your language file.
In /language/english.php change line 113 from
define('_EMPTY_CATEGORY', 'This Category is currently empty');
You can also change the text in the menu link to weblinks.
