Aaaaah spidering.. now that makes some sense.

No we're not spidering the site, but I'll take that into account.
That said it seems we've got over the issue by using HTML rather than

I'll follow through on your suggestions and come back to you when I've
got something more repeatable for you.

Thanks heaps for the help.

Are you spidering your site?  I'd think you would need to spider if you
are trying to index jsp.

Turn on ParserWarnLevel 9 and see what the parser is saying about the
source.  That may give you some hints.

Even with that file you sent I don't see that.  Perhaps something is
changing in the email.  Try trimming down the file the the smallest
amount that still generates that incorrect description.
