Here is some HTML that shows the problem in IE5:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<span class="foo">this is line 1<br></br>this is line 2</span>

The above is an example of what is getting output.

However, I have been playing around with my setup for the last few days and
cannot reproduce the same output anymore.  I moved up to jserv 1.1.2 (among
many other things) and I think the server is on jserv 1.1.1. I was seeing
quite a few strange things on my system so I have been correcting (?) them.

It is strange that it happened to my machine and to the dev server
(configured by by me and by admin types, repectively).  I have been asking
for a correction in the content so I don't have to deal with it (the content
should not be that way to begin with...) or they upgrade the setup for this
site (which is quite large and involved...)
