IE 6.0 Spacing Bug Demo Page

The purpose of this page is to demonstrate a bug in Internet Explorer 6.0 with the handling of spaces in HTML code.

IE sometimes removes space following the </math> tag. It seems to do so when there is no start tag on the same line. For example, the following code renders with no space between "A" and "is incident":

<p style="font-size:24 pt">Point
<m:math>
<m:mi mathvariant="normal">A</m:mi>
</m:math> is incident...</p>

Point A is incident...

But, if we join the last two lines in the code, the space appears:

<p style="font-size:24 pt">Point
<m:math>
<m:mi mathvariant="normal">A</m:mi></m:math> is incident...</p>

Point A is incident...
