That is strange! At first glance, I don't see why it should be doing that (though I haven't worked through all the CSS yet). Moving the
tag outside the div seems to produce the desired results ... but I don't understand yet why it is doing it in the first place.
It is clearly CSS related though - if you disable styles, the
displays as expected. I'm still playing with it, and see if I can figure out why it's doing that.
addtional: Whatever is causing it to do that is not in the .fw-footer class - commenting it out produces the same result except that the vertical bar moves to being left-aligned instead of right.
