| And is that text supposed to be treated as PRE?
| 
| MSIE doesn't correctly strip a newline after <PRE>, so that given
this:
| 
|   <TEXTAREA NAME="Comments" COLS=40 ROWS=3>
|   Some text here that was added by a CGI script that
|   requires data replacement tags to be the only
|   element on the line.
|   </TEXTAREA>
| 
| The text will begin on the second line of the text box.

And to make matters worse, it certianly doesn't use a monospaced font
does it...
