It's the little things

Guh. There's nothing quite as embarassing as having made a simple formatting mistake in your blog and then having propagated it for a couple of months.

I just recently realized that this really only breaks how my blog appears in Firefox. Given that I use Opera, Safari, and IE, and given that they all displayed what I wanted to see, I never realized the mistake. So now I just republished two months' worth of entries to fix it.


I never noticed a problem (I use Firefox 1.5.x). What was it?
I'd placed a slash before the br rather than after the br between the angle brackets. What I saw was that the line breaks were ignored, yielding large run-on paragraphs.
Ahhhhh. That's not totally obvious, but that does explain some.
