Why do these two pages look different?

page as it shows up on my boxHere's my CSS:

#wysiwyg {
white-space: pre-wrap;
padding-left:5px;
}

My HTML:

<div id="wysiwyg">
<span style="font-size:18pt; font-weight:strong;">JSON / CSV Conversion Machine</span>

Convert a compressed JSON.gz file to a readable CSV file...

<div id="title">&nbsp;I) Decompress Your JSON.gz file </div>      

Copy the name of the JSON file you want to decompress into the field below. Be sure actual file is sitting in the same directory as this page!

</div>

Why is it that it shows up fine on my box but doesn't look the same on my server?

Look at the two attached graphics and tell me what you think!

Yeah...that's probably an intranet site.

Nuts. What else can I offer you?

It's reading the style sheet, right? Otherwise, my fonts would be all over the place and I wouldn't be getting my blue bar etc. It's the white-space: pre-wrap;. I've got no idea...

Out of curiousity, is this case really solved?

brucegustPHP DeveloperAuthor Commented:
Morning, Jazz. No, it's not solved, but I wanted to acknowledge Gary's willingness to help which is why I went ahead and tied it off in light of not being able to recreate the dynamic on any server (including my own). What I'm contending with seems unique to the intranet server I'm on and it's not a publicly accessed site. So, I'm stuck.

What browser are you using on the server? If IE it's not in compat mode is it - just a guess.

brucegustPHP DeveloperAuthor Commented:
I'm using IE across the boards, both on my server and the intranet server. And when I say  "my server," that's me having gone out to brucegust.com and set things up out there as opposed to just my box, just to see if there was a difference and both brucegust.com and my computer gave me the line breaks. It's that intranet site that doesn't recognize it for some reason.

Attach the source code/css from the intranet page (and I mean from the browser), I'll see if I can replicate it
