    We consider the empirical process of a one-dimensional diffusion with finite speed measure, indexed by a collection of functions F. By the central limit theorem for diffusions, the finite-dimensional distributions of converge weakly to those of a zero-mean Gaussian random process . We prove that the weak convergence takes place in l8(F) if and only if the limit exists as a tight, Borel measurable map. The proof relies on majorizing measure techniques for continuous martingales. Applications include the weak convergence of the local time density estimator and the empirical distribution function on the full state space.
