I like to generate my HTML pages in FileMaker Pro. The user fills in the form
and FileMaker Pro wraps the needed HTML code around the fields. FileMaker Pro
uses different carriage return characters for line breaks in text fields and as
record separators. When I look at the final web page the line feeds display
rectangles.

Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
Treat linefeeds and carriage returns as whitespace

The problem also occurs in Netscape 8.0, but not in Internet Explorer 6
validation tells you you shouldn't use those.

it occurs in any browser but IE

(i suspect it's a dupe, just can't find it)
Netscape is no longer developed. Do you see this with Firefox 3.6.3 or later?
