WordPress version: 3.1.1
Theme: PlatformPro 1.3.5
Child Theme: PlatformBase 1.3.2
Plugin: Advanced Most Recent Posts Mod 1.6.2 by Kailey Lampert

Problem: the text lines up at the bottom of the image instead of “along side” the image.

Solution: Add the following CSS to PlatformBase child theme’s base.css file:

[css]/* Advanced Most Recent Posts Mod
* Align image and text along side each other,
* instead of the text starting at the baseline of the image:
* http://trepmal.com/plugins/advanced-most-recent-posts-mod/comment-page-1/#comment-764
*/
ul.advanced-recent-posts { list-style:none; line-height:1.35em; margin:0;}
ul.advanced-recent-posts li { clear:both;width:100%;margin: 0 0 15px;}
ul.advanced-recent-posts a { font-weight:bold; }
ul.advanced-recent-posts img { float:left; margin:0 10px 0 0; padding:2px;border:none; }[/css]
