Pat is correct about the Russell Co. business. You are missing out a
br tag between the "Russell Co. AL" text and the "Maughan/Maughn" text.
I cannot emphasize enough how much easier these things are to find
and debug with the FireFox browser and the Web Developer extension. One
thing you can do is highlight a portion of a page, right click, and
select "View selection source". Doing that here reveals the following code:
< p align="left">< font color="#b7b7ff" face="Buckingham">< b>< br>
Co. AL< /b>< /font>
< a href="maughnfamily.htm">< b>
Maughan< br> <----
< /b>< /a>< b>
Actually, it looks like the br tag (<----) is just misplaced, being
placed after Maughan with all those extraneous non-breaking spaces
(nbsp). Move it up before the A tag where it belongs, and lose all those
The above snippet of html was modified by inserting a space after
each open pointed bracket. This to help the rather stupid AOL browser
which apparently cannot distinguish between /use/ and /mention/ when it
comes to html.
