IE and this <br> issue
I am so confused about what is going on with this code I have. Below is a mini screenshot of where I am having this code issue:
Notice the part where I have circled. It's fine and stuff. But here is the code for that part:
基督教家庭服務中心<br> 翠林綜合職業復康服務<br> <br> <br> 電話: 2703 6670<br> 傳真: 2703 6767<br> 電郵: <a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>
So I was wondering if anyone has an explanation for this wierd thingy?
Here is the link to the actual website:

This information I am grabbing is coming from a CMS I built. When the users make a line break the PHP uses the function nl2br to convert all the line breaks into <br> which is why I can't use <p> here.
Any other alternative?

Also, I've added the code margin: 0 and padding: 0 already....

My bad - I just noticed you had the wildcard rule in there already.
I see two line breaks in both IE6 and Firefox 1.5 (though I am on Linux I am running the "real" IE6 for all practical purposes).
If it is possible to retrofit your CMS to wrap sections of text in paragraphs that would be more semantic and ideal - although it may be a pain to do.
Doesn't mean we can't get what you have to work though.

OK - on further review, there are two line breaks in Firefox and one in IE6 - visually (as you already noted).
It has been a long day - and my eyes is mad tied.
It would seem you have two choices - feed different CSS to IE via a conditional comment or some other means or use <p> tags to wrap related text.
The "difference" you are pointing out is a difference most would be willing to deal with/compromise on and live with, as a result of such varied rendering via the different browsers.

As mentioned above you should never use breaks just to make space in a layout but if you are restricted by your cms then you could try this.
