My reference to June 2009, is the last time I generate tiOPF docs on my server. The problem came to my attention when I recently wanted to update the tiOPF online help, but immediately noticed the doublespace issue.

And here is the difference between the Official FPC Docs fpdoc.css and what I have locally. As you can see, my copy in near identical to the official fpc one, I simply define a specific font size. But as I said, even if I used the offcial fpdoc.css file, I still have double spacing. So again, the issue is _not_ related to the CSS file, but to the actual HTML generated. This is easily seen, by simply disabling CSS in your browser. With Firefox do the following  "View - Page Style - No Style"
Correct HTML shows no double spacing. Incorrect HTML (as I have here) shows double spacing (even with CSS disabled).

If it will help, I can put the "broken" tiOPF docs up on my server too, in a temp directory.
