In the last 24 hours or so lyricwiki.com updated to the latest version of MediaWiki, and with that came some database upgrades. Unfortunately for us, somewhere along the line, something was changed that caused line breaks in the text that XBMC Lyrics grabs from lyricwiki.com to stop being parsed or displayed properly. Instead of displaying all the text formatted nicely, it displays it all on one very long line (you can see what I wrote about it here: http://lyricwiki.org/User_talk:Sean_Colo...om_the_API

Not being a python scripter myself, I really have no idea where to start looking to try and fix this problem, so I'm just leaving a message here for the developer so they can be alerted to the problem and it can hopefully be fixed.
