Random Equals sign showing up in generated DOM source

Editing this html file:

in Dreamweaver, BBEdit and using pico from the shell, the source looks fine. If you open it up with Opera, Firefox or Safari, there is a rogue equals sign character stuck in above the nested table on the right that contains all the menu items. I’ve tried removing all the javascripting, and the links to the CSS files, that didn’t change anything. I’ve never seen anything like this before, and Dreamweavers built-in preview browser doesn’t show the equals sign. It only shows up when you view the generated source in Firefox using the Firefox Web Developers Toolbar, or if you highlight the equals sign and right click, then select “View Selection Source”.
Oh, and when users view the web page :slight_smile:
Any ideas?

The culprit:


            </ul>         </td>
  	    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" cols="2"><tbody><tr>
					<td class="title">Bruschetta</td><td class="price">5.5</td>

The source as it looks in Dreamweaver or any other text editors:

            </UL>         </td>
         <table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing ="0" cols="2"><tr>
					<td class="title">Bruschetta</td><td class="price">5.5</td>
