et al. does not separate from author names in bibliography

Hi Guys,


I am having a problem where I am having the bibliography looking like below when "et al." is appropriate:


Ang KK, Harris J, Wheeler Ret al. Human papillomavirus and survival of patients with oropharyngeal cancer. The New England journal of medicine 2010; 363:24-35.


When I go to the output style and check, the options indicate that in articles with >7 authors, the reference will only list the first 3 followed by ", et al." What I see here is that the first 3 authors are indeed listed, but the "et al" ortion is concatenated with the last author's name. When I check the reference on EndNote, all authors are listed on separate lines wihtout unnecessary listings like "et al." I haven't been able to figure this out, and it's really frustrating!


Please help me out with this.


Thank you!

Please attach your output style, which I suspect is missing a critical <space> before the et al in the box (,<space> et al or just <space>et al. -- as preferred in the Author Separators section of the Bibliography section of the output style.
