Subject:   Extra spaces in instructions after final step

Great article, really, it made my day.


Just a minor issue: having copied&pasted edit.rhtml code from the article I observed some extra spaces in front of instructions field.


This is the generated html. As you can see extra spaces are maintained and rendered while in textarea. This may cause some confusion.


Cheers!
