Hi all,
    I had a little free time today and so I made a minor upgrade to the tips 

A. I was using pre tags and displaying the submitted tip just as the submitter 
entered it. Therefore a paragraph was considered a single line visually, not to 
a screen reader. So sighted users would have to scroll horizontally, something 
that is very unappealing. I now interpret single line breaks as br tags and two 
line breaks as p tags. So double line breaks makes a new "paragraph" whereas a 
single line break just forces the text to the next line.

B. The application/version was being run together. I had a space separating the 
two variables that hold that data in the code and it should have been displayed 
correctly, but for some reason it wasn't. So I added a dash in between the two 
to force a separation. Screen reader users should no longer hear Kurzweil100010 

There are a couple of tips that are in the wrong application category on the 
website. I'll fix that sometime. It will require me to manually edit the 
database as I didn't code a web based way to do it.
