Plugin Shows Character On Unexpanded Posts

Not sure if this is plugin or theme related, but I'm seeing a character on unexpanded posts when viewing the 'template-blognews.php' page .

Screenshot of unexpanded post. Please notice the '0' at the end.

After the post is expanded the '0' gets rendered correctly via the post voting plugin

This would appear to be a bug - regardless what is causing it.

Thanks for any assistance on this =)
