Outlook 2010 image gap issue

I am having an issue with images on Outlook 2010. It introduces a space, as if there was a <br /> present between my headline and the copy. I have read a few articles and tried all solutions I could find, to no avail. I am sure I missed one, but perhaps this is something one of you know how to take care of? I have copied and pasted a generic version of the code here:

<strong>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit</strong><br />
<table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td><a href="https://www.campaignmonitor.com" target="_blank"><img hspace="15" src="image.jpg" style="margin: 0px 0px 0px 5px;" width="110" /></a></td></tr></table>

I saw a few people reviewed, but had no ideas. Just so it helps others having the same issue, I found a hack to make it work: wrapping the headline before the pick inside a table. Of course, I had to include the css for the type in the table, as Outlook for PC also ignores any inherent styles in my template if any text is within tables. For the record, here it is:

<table width="100%"  border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td style="font-size: 13px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Lucida, Verdana, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; color: #000000; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 115% !important; -ms-text-size-adjust: 115% !important;"><strong>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit</strong></td></tr></table>
