Dynamicly loaded text?

i’m designing a site and i used the dynamicly loaded text tut from kirupa to help with doing quick edits to the site. the problem is…the leading between the text on each line is enormous and being that i’m only creating this in notepad there aren’t many options for controlling such a task that i can see…here is a rough layout of what i’m talking about in the top right box and lower left box.

any help would be great…thanks
