Try a postprocessing run-through by some streaming editor instructed to
turn every instance of  "<IMG[linebreak]" into "<IMG[space]".

I believe that this sort of thing is trivial in sed, awk, or perl, but
since I'm too lazy/thick to learn any of these I'd instead use either a
macro in a text editor that handles regular expressions or a
MS-DOS/Win32 utility called SNR.
