Mac IE5

There are a number of places on the site that we apparently generate malformed HTML. Most browsers handle it pretty well, but IE5 for Mac renders some stuff pretty screwy. This is our fault, not IE's.

I've looked at to see if it was obvious, but validator returns tons of errors, many of which aren't real or serious.

So, challenge: send me a patch which fixes the HTML so talkpost.bml and talkread.bml with lots of comments don't look stupid on the mac. I'm not sure where the problem is... in the site template layer, or the HTML the talk* pages make, etc.

As this is a pet peeve of mine and I'm sure other people use macs also, I'll offer a permanent account for the first working patch. :)
