Ah, thanks. I sometimes forget that 'view source' in Firefox isn't, in fact, viewing source at all. (Although 'view selection source' is still a killer feature which I miss trerribly in other browsers).

Yes, that explanation makes sense. So <a /> gets 'error corrected' to <a> by the html parser, enveloping subsequent text until a new <a> implicitly closes the preceding one.

Assuming that the conversion was done by XSLT, this should be easy to fix so that an html-happy subset of xml is used.
