On this page, http://bit.ly/nH3oKU, and other pages on the site we're having issues with word spacing in Google Chrome on a PC.

Take a look at the attached screenshot. Does anyone know how to fix it?

My Google Chrome shows it perfectly well.  An inspection of your CSS and HTML shows no major problems.  Have you tried clearing the cache?
Yeah, it's only showing up on the clients computer. I tried private browsing, etc. Nothing seems to get it to go away.
Could it be a font issue?
That's a good possibility.  You have a bunch of non-standard fonts in the style description:

13px/1.5 'Helvetica Neue',Arial,'Liberation Sans',FreeSans,sans-serif

Thoughts on a good way to clean that up?

It looks fine here also.
Well, you can either change the font description on your site, or load your client's computer with the right fonts. But the last possiblity is kind of rediculous because you are going to have a ton of computers with the same issue.

See http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_websafe_fonts.asp.

Arial is a standard font and sans-serif will use the browser's default font if none of the others are present so it's probably not a font issue.

Try disabling the installed browser extensions and see if anything changes.

You're using <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-2" /> (and it's in there twice on all your pages) but my Firefox is showing UTF8 encoding unless I force it to iso-8859-2 which is listed as Eastern or Central European.
Thanks, let me check out that meta issue now
Fixed the meta issue. I can't replicate, not sure why. Even with that font stack it would jump to Arial, BUT I did remove the awkward fonts there.
