The svmono class (available here) butchers spacing inside arrays; compare

\documentclass{svmono}
\begin{document}

$\begin{array}{|l|}
text
\end{array}$

\end{document}

to the same in the article class. There is very little space between the left line of the array and the text. Does anyone know which length might be involved?

The distance between the vertical rules and cell contents is specified by \arraycolsep in the array environment. Change this to your liking using

\setlength{\arraycolsep}{<len>}

Default in the document class seems to be 1.5pt, compared to 5pt in article.
