    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
    1992
    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)

    Mine are that way as well. Even if I make the notes on my Pre and save them, they will do the same thing. I thought it was maybe just me. It really bugs me, but I have found that if you space to the end of the line and then start typing so that it automatically puts the break in, you won't have all the extra garbage.

    It's a bug in the system. Palm has been made aware of the issue and is looking into it.

    Wow. I honestly did search for that "<br/>", but no luck. That would have been pretty obscure one to find with a search!! Thanks HardBeatZ!!

    This bug is driving me nuts. Has there been any word on when this will get fixed?

    I was wondering if there will be an update to 1.4.5 that will fix it or do we have to wait until 2.0 rolls out on my Pre+

    I don't think there's going to be any update before 2.0 . . . .
