Hi Laura,

Looks like your format string is at fault. It's generating some weird HTML
with "<hr width=1 noshade>" tags appearing in places where they shouldn't.

Something to note about format strings used to generate lists is that when
they're displayed greenstone checks if they begin with "<td" and end with
"</td>". If they do then greenstone inserts them inside a table, otherwise
it doesn't do so.

So, take for example a formatstring like "<td>[Title]</td>". Greenstone
would insert this in a table and you'd end up with HTML like:
<table>
<tr><td>value of Title 1</td></tr>
<tr><td>value of Title 2</td></tr>
</table>

Compare that to a format string like "<br />[Title]". From this greenstone
would generate HTML something like the following (no table).
<br />value of Title 1
<br />value of Title 2

>From a brief look ath the HTML on your site I'd guess you've got a format
statement something like "<tr><td>[link][image][/link]</td></tr><hr width=1
noshade>".

You should perhaps try something more like "<br />[link][image][/link]<br
/><hr />".

Stefan.
