Text with poor line spacing / bunched up text on iPhone

This is not a problem I have had with my e-shots, however I've received several newsletters recently which, when viewed on iPhone, seem to have insufficient line spacing, ie. the text is all bunched up.

Just curious, does anyone know what causes this?

Some of these emails are from businesses I know personally, so it would be good to be able to point this out to them and offer a solution at the same time.

Post the code! My guess is they have line-height set incorrectly. Maybe they have a media query that changes the font-size but not the line-height - if line-height is set inline (or vice versa), this could cause the mis-match.

@JohnP Thanks. Too late, have deleted the email. But when I get another one like this I'll post the code!
