[Portfolio] Form not rendering textarea correctly on one instance of Sakai 2.9

There is some funny business with HTML via XSLT regarding self-closing tags. I'm certain I encountered this some time ago, but can't recall the exact solution. Double check the output format for the stylesheet vs. the stock formCreate.xslt. The creation renderer will take precedence over formFieldTemplate.xslt for the output settings.

The result of this is that the rest of the HTML after this <textarea/> tag appears in the text area in the browser. No submit other fields, no submit buttons....
