I am not sure but I would bet the problem is that this page is
declared as XHTML 1.0 Transitional

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >

but its content is in no way a valid XHTML document, as you can se
here: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.traderydex.com%2Flogin%2Findex.rails&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.2

Maybe - just maybe - it is confusing the twill parser. Would it be
possible to correct the code of the page?

Good luck!
