Mysterious Blank Spaces In Blog Posts

Various bloggers are complaining of mysterious blank spaces in the middle of their blog posts. The common factor noted, so far, is that the blogs affected are using a Rounders template.

The blank spaces appear to be the result of AdSense or Google Ads content, which some bloggers aren't even aware of.
<div style="float: right;"><script type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"
type="text/javascript">
</script><iframe name="google_ads_frame" src="http://
pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/ads?
client=undefined ... "
marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" vspace="0" hspace="0"
allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="" scrolling="no"
width=""></iframe>
</div>


Note the " ... " above, that represents a large amount of detail removed, for the sake of brevity.

The example above, from a forum thread, involves a blog with Rounders 4. My personal test of a new blog using Rounders 4 is negative, so the problem isn't consistent with the Blogger Template Library containing corrupt code. Another forum thread suggests that the template was acquired from a third party, identity currently unknown.
