Problem with rendering of unwanted white spae after an application conversion to eliminate scriplets going to JSP 2.0. In IE text fields render unwanted white space. Running the application in Firefox displays properly. In IE the data in text boxes appear to be missing. The data is there, but does not appear unless you manually delete the white space. Also started utilizing I am using HTML 4.01 Specification with CSS stylesheets wheareas current production code only uses CSS stylesheets. Please help!

Yes, there is huge amount of whitespace when viewing source. Below is jsp code. Still makes no sense why it displays perfectly in Firefox, but not IE. Please let me know if you need to see other code. Yes, I am new at this.
