open the url below in IE9 http://www.radikal.com.tr/Default.aspx?aType=RadikalYazar&ArticleID=1057171&Yazar=EZG%DD%20BA%DEARAN&Date=22.07.2011&CategoryID=96

It's a commentary published in a turkish newspaper. While reading the body of the essay with NVDA, you should see that the text is unnecessaryly displayed in different lines and all the words divided.

Although I do not speak the language, this effect is obvious in IE8 on XP as well as a quick look in firefox proves the page is displaying correctly there, with no issues.
Could this be a website issue?

Changed title from "Text displayed in different lines in IE9" to "Text displayed in different lines in IE 8 and 9 instead of as lines of text."

Fixed in c7cf3ad. Issue was that there are span elements with a display style of none between each word. But NVDA was treeting these as block nodes in line calculations, thus breaking the lines.
