I have a simply php page which I'm using for some tests. For some strange reason all of the html tags are showing up when I view it in FireFox. Could someone take a look at the page below and tell me if they are also seeing the html tags in Firefox, and if so do you know why this is happening? Thanks

McGraw-Hill Construction, publisher of <em>Mid-Atlantic Construction</em>, reported that the value of January construction contracts increased&nbsp;in most of the magazine's coverage area.<br /><br />On a state-by-state basis, the overall numbers for January were mostly promising. For instance, compared to the same period of a year ago,&nbsp;the total value of January contracts improved by <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2010/0308_VAJumpinProjectStarts.asp\" target=\"_blank\">22% in Virginia</a>, <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2010/0308_MDIncreaseinJanContracts.asp\" target=\"_blank\">9% in Maryland</a>, a whopping <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2010/0308_DCProjectStartsUp.asp\" target=\"_blank\">85% in the District of Columbia</a>, and by nearly <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2010/0308_DEContractatRobustClip.asp\" target=\"_blank\">400% in Delaware</a>. On the other hand, <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2010/0308_PAContractDeclines.asp\" target=\"_blank\">Pennsylvania&nbsp;experienced a 26% overall decline</a> in the value of its January contracts.<br /><br />With all four of those states and D.C. having just experienced another declining year for total construction, those numbers probably sound nice. However, those good-looking overall numbers are hiding some other, uglier ones.<br /><br />For starters, there's the nonresidential market. A mostly non-starter in 2009 throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, this sector showed some split personality in January. On the&nbsp;minus side, Maryland's nonresidential market fell 69% in January, while Virginia's dropped 45% and Pennsylvania's plummeted 82%. In Delaware, it was a different story, however, as nonresidential contracts ballooned from just $29.4 million recorded in January '09 to the $182.8 million that moved forward this past January. In D.C., too, the nonresidential market mushroomed--at least compared to a year ago--and grew 86%.<br /><br />There was good news in the other sectors, too. Residential figures were up by varying degrees in most parts of the region. Maryland led the&nbsp;four states&nbsp;with a 98% uptick, followed by Virginia's 81% improvement, Delaware's 62% increase and Pennsylvania's 17% gain. D.C.'s residential market grew, too, from the $2.3 million of a year ago to the latest figure of more than $6 million.<br /><br />And the nonbuilding category, which includes infrastructure projects, was decidedly upbeat, too. In fact, in Virginia, Maryland and&nbsp;Delaware, nonbuilding contract activity more than doubled compared to the same period of a year ago. In Pennsylvania, nonbuilding work was up by 80%. (No D.C. nonbuilding contracts were reported for January. That compares to last year's $1 million total.)<br /><br />Does that mean 2010 will play out this way -- with declines in the&nbsp;nonresidential sector that are offset by the residential and nonbuilding&nbsp;markets? And that the overall direction for the market will be up? It's impossible to say, of course. But it does reflect generally the forecast for 2010 that <a href=\"http://midatlantic.construction.com/midatlantic_construction_news/2009/1201_Non-ResidentialMarket.asp\" target=\"_blank\">McGraw-Hill Construction provided</a> in late 2009.

How does business look for the markets your company operates in?&nbsp;Do you see the nonresidential market showing any signs of life sometime this year? Do you think the residential and nonbuilding markets will continue to provide a steady spate of work for 2010?

As Kolarevic was quick to say, \"this subject of performance is not news to engineers.\" And how. </p><p>The two covered such topics as finite element analysis, stress analysis in structures, airflow and pressure diagrams, acoustic visualization, and surface development. These sorts of studies and analyses are pretty much standard on much of the high-performance architecture we regularly feature in RECORD. But as Kolarevic cautions, this penchant for digital analysis \"can easily lead to a garbage-in, garbage-out kind of modeling.\" We editors certainly come across that at times, but you probably won't see us publishing it. </p><p>Malkawi stressed the need for true integration. We often think of integration in terms of the design team's collaboration, he says, when true integration is a more holistic approach to combining architecture and building systems. He also says we need to move beyond using digital modeling to justify design after the fact, but to instead let digital models lead us toward new design.
