A stupid little bug

All paragraphs in the boxes on the left have a text-indent style applied. In the first box, the style is p {text-indent: -1.5em;} for a hanging indent. In the second box, the style is p {text-indent: 1.5em;} for a standard indent. Only the first line of every paragraph should be affected, pulled outside to the left, or inside in the second box bellow. The first 3 (in lilac) paragraphs have a line break [ <br /> ] at the end of the first line.

IE 5.x Mac incorrectly applies the text-indent to the second line when an image (that little red and grey square) is inserted (inline) at the beginning of the second line.
