I've noticed this for a while now and hadn't really been too concerned about it... I guess I'm still not concerned, but it is annoying.
My google contacts with notes all have html tags for line breaks "<br/>" on the Pre in the notes field...
for example, the notes field when looking at the contact entry in Google Contacts (or while EDITING the contact on the Pre) is:
University of Washington
Lived in Japan 1996-2000
Fiancées name is Miko
But when viewing the contact entry on the Pre, it looks like this (with wrapping to fill the width of the screen, but not appropriate line breaks).
University of Washington<br/>1992<br/>Lived in Japan 1996-2000<br/>Fiancées name is Miko
Is this the same for everyone? or are my Contact notes somehow different? -- I had imported from Outlook about a year ago. But I don't remember seeing these <br/> tags until the last several months... As I mention above, if I tap "edit" then the notes field looks normal with line breaks as they should be (until I save it)
