My Author variable contains a hidden <BR>

I had this strange experience with the Author variable which seemed to contain an additional <BR> in a simple
FOR loop.

It's repeatable for me.

Would someone like to validate this on another machine.

The problem seems to be with placement of <SPAN> and <DIV> tags. I'll write up something more detail later when I can find time.

I can't repro this. As far as I know it "should" be impossible to get a <BR> into an Author.

Resolved. Sorrrry. I feel really stupid for taking up everyone's time.

The margins for my text were set by my CSS - and I did not take that into account hence the phantom <BR>.
