Extra spaces in HTML output

When my pages are generated, Confluence is adding extra spaces to the output.

Does anyone know why, or how to prevent it, or how to work around this bug?

I've checked the layout pages and the spaces appear in between some DIVs. It's not consistent, and it's not the same number of space characters. And they are not &nbsp's, so only Chrome renders them (the output looks fine in Firefox and IE).

Turns out that it was the use of <span> tags in the Page Layout file. Confluence interprets spaces in span tags as literals and does not strip them out. I had used a few to do indentation and they were being passed through to the rendered page.
