    I have a problem with gaps appearing in post texts, here's a link to a post with the issue which always appears near the featured image. http://blog.pre-pay-as-you-go.co.uk/2012/02/06/samsung-does-battle-with-the-eu-and-apple/

    possibly the 10px margin below the post image combined with the line height of the text; as styled in style.css of your theme:

    .post_thumbnail {
        padding: 6px;
        background: #FFFFFF;
        border: 1px solid #DFDDD5;
        margin: 0 10px 10px 0;
    }

    you might need to post a screenshot to point to the exact spot of the problem.

    or try to align the image to the right to see if that loks different.

    general more a formatting problem which is not within the scope of this WordPress forum;

    try to work with a tool such as Firebug http://getfirebug.com/ to identify the cause.

    your posts formatting seems to be set to text-align: justify; and if there is not enough space to fit another full word, you will get those kind of gaps.

    change to: text-align: left;

    the existing code in style.css:

    .entry {
    	text-align: justify;
    	line-height: 18px;
    	padding-top: 8px;
    	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans-serif;
    	font-size: 13px;
        color: #555555;
    	}
