Default Elements (EMPTY) and Attributes #Required

Okay we have a DTD sent to us by a business partner, and we are pretty new to this, and something has stumped us (and my Wrox books are not providing the miracle answer for once).

They have an Element with no marked as EMPTY but in the Element they have Attributes marked #REQUIRED.

How does that work as EMPTY means the element can be empty, but how can it be empty if it has #REQUIRED Attributes? Or is there some strange rule that comes into play when this combo is in a DTD?
