Why can't you use [b]<[/b][b]br>[/b] I thought that was valid in HTML Strict.

Try [b]<br [/b][b]/>[/b] It might be that it wants a closing tag.

According to this line in the DTD, it's fine as text markup...

Dunno if it's anything to do with this but if you're using css inline then you should start with <style type="text/css"> and end with </style> and put the css in between

I hate to say it, but that's correct.  You should always have paragraph tags around your text.
