HTML bug on pocket queries page

This has been around since the layout change release quit a while ago. I reported it a couple of times in comments then, but it must have been overlooked because the bug is still there.

 

You can go to my "Geocaching->Your Pocket Queries" page http://www.geocaching.com/pocket/default.aspx in the Nudecacher account any day to see the problem.

 

For queries that have already run with a date in the "Last Generated" column and are on an even numbered row with the blue background, the "Name" column entry is mucked up. Apparently the html code for the cell is bad. Anyway the name displays like this, for example:

 

d529 CUR2e 04-12-2010 thru 04-21-2010 GC26NX0 Total Records: 989">d529 CUR2e 04-12-2010 thru 04-21-2010 GC26NX0 Total Records: 989

 

Instead of what it should have like this:

 

d529 CUR2e 04-12-2010 thru 04-21-2010 GC26NX0 Total Records: 989

 

Here is the html that is generated for that cell:

 

[pre]

<td><img src="/images/silk/database_lightning.png" alt="Pocket Query"> (1000)

<a href="http://www.geocaching.com/pocket/gcquery.aspx?guid=243ebbd1-4d92-4b3c-ae48-aecfe31afff4"

title="<span class=" strike="">d529 CUR2e 04-12-2010 thru 04-21-2010 GC26NX0 Total Records:

989"><span class="Strike">d529 CUR2e 04-12-2010 thru 04-21-2010 GC26NX0 Total Records:

989</span></a></td>

[/pre]

 

Here is the code for the next (odd) line cell which displays correctly:

 

[pre]

<td><img src="/images/silk/database_lightning.png" alt="Pocket Query"> (1000)

<a href="http://www.geocaching.com/pocket/gcquery.aspx?guid=e8b296bd-2fc7-414b-079-d362e1fa392e"

title="d528 CUR2a 04-13-2010 thru 04-18-2010 GC24GCA Total Records:

944"><span class="Strike">d528 CUR2a 04-13-2010 thru 04-18-2010 GC24GCA Total Records:

944</span></a></td

[/pre]

 

There seems to be garbage characters inserted at the begining of the title value:

 

<span class=" strike="">

 

Rows for queries that have not yet run and all odd numbered rows with the white background don't have the bug and display correctly.

 

I am using Windows XP 5.1sp3, Firefox 3.6.3, Google Chrome 3.0.195.38, and Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702 (only to check this, I never use it otherwise). All three browsers demonstrate the bug.

 

It's only a visual problem and is not causing any functional problems, but I thought you might want to know about it to fix it.

 

Thanks,
