Extra space after include

I am having a very weird issue with a new site I am working on.

When I build the layout, everything works fine. But then if I go and cut my layout into multiple include files (Header, Footer and Sidebar), when I render the new template, I am either getting extra space above or below my includes (above in IE, below in a WebKit browser).

In the newest version of SS, it seems to insert comments automatically into my HTML. Could that be affecting something?

I've successfully built many SS templates before, and have never seen this kind of error. Anyone else solved this?

it could be the encoding of the file?

Maybe it's the whitespace that is rendered as a "blank" line. I have encountered similar issues with IE. Try to set CSS line-height and font-size to zero on the element that wraps the includes. Then of course set line-height and font-size of the inner elements to normal values again.
