?? IE 8 Mis-handles the <br> Element ??
I think most of us know that an empty element can be abbreviated as <xyz/>.
We see this all the time with the <hr> and <br> elements.
I have a situation where I'm using XHTML 1.1 with IE 8. IE 8 does not render
the <br> element correctly (although Firefox does). The problem is that IE 8
prodices *two* line breaks when it should produc only one. The complete
document is below.
Does anyone have a comment on this? Is it in fact incorrect? I'm about 99%
sure it is. Thanks.
