I was intrigued by this problem, so I grabbed your source and began
playing with it.  Since nothing seemed obviously wrong with the HTML or
CSS, I began to go the process-of-elimination route.  I quickly
determined that, for whatever reason, the PRE tags were causing this
problem, and so I tried something, just for fun....which seems to do the
trick!  I changed the PRE property's display value to INLINE, from its
default value of BLOCK.

Add this to your stylesheet:

	display: inline;

If any of you CSS gurus can explain this, I'd love to here from you.
