Alignment of text in a line for TextView

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm a beginner for Android development. I'm making a simple app which displays a TextView with highlighted text. This is my work. http://i.stack.imgur.com/U5OPe.png (I cannot upload images directly because I'm new to stackoverflow) But there is a problem in it. It seems that the text is not aligned vertically in line. I want my TextView to display text like the picture below. http://i.stack.imgur.com/1sUKd.png This picture is a part of Quote.fm application for iOS.
