Login to the Web Admin for that list and then click on:
  Edit the public HTML pages

Then click on:
  General list information page

Looks like the upgrade might have thrown in a <pre> </pre> block around
the added text it found there.  You should be able to edit it back into
the HTML shape it was in.

If not, post the source you get for the listinfo page and I'll be happy
to take a look at it.
