I'm working on a page combining Ajax.InPlaceEditor and the
simple_format helper.  The page is demonstrating some very strage
behavior.  First, here is the code:


<p>Bio:   </p>
<div id="bio">
<% if @user.bio %>
     <%= simple_format( @user.bio ) %>\
<% else %>
     No Bio Yet
<% end %>
</div><em>(click on your to bio edit it)</em>

<script language="JavaScript">
    new Ajax.InPlaceEditor('bio', '/users/preferences/savebio/<%=
@user.id %>', {rows:10,cols:40});
</script>

The InPlaceEditor works perfectly, but the page itself is what is
acting weird.  Somehow on every refresh, an additional line break is
added to the final paragraph inside of the <div> so that the page
begins to rapidly expand.  I can't figure out how this is happening,
because it persists through both hard and soft refreshes *without
being saved to the database.*

Has anyone else experienced this strange behavior?

Thanks,
Josh
