Problems with a broken PayPal "Make a Donation" button

I don't know if this has affected anyone else, but I thought I'd put it out here just in case.

In my recent entry, Sponsor Connor, I added a "Make a Donation" button provided through PayPal. It's the first time I've ever done this.

I was unaware, until someone pointed out to me, that anyone attempting to make a donation was directed to an error message suggesting that PayPal was having a temporary problem with the donation. Try it here:

Note: this button is intentionally broken. If you wish to donate toward the sponsored rally that Connor is undertaking please visit the Sponsor Connor entry.

If you are experiencing similar problems, the solution is simple. The code provided by the PayPal site is very slightly broken. The penultimate line of code, the one starting "<input type="hidden" " is split across 2 lines. There is a linebreak immediately before the final characters "">". Simply delete this linebreak and the code will work.
