line-height — NN 4 IE 4 CSS 1
Sets the height of the inline box (the box holding one physical line
of content). Under normal circumstances, the
line-height of the tallest font in a line of text

face or font size specified for inline content.
In practice, both Navigator 4 and Internet Explorer 4 can experience
line space rendering problems when the
of inline text is larger than the size of surrounding text. Not all
lines of the outer block adhere to the block’s
line-height setting as expected (especially lines
after the larger text segment). Moreover, in Navigator 4, the
line-height attribute does not traverse more than
one generation if the second generation element becomes a block-level
element (such as a positioned or floated element). Test these
settings extensively to make sure you get the look you desire.
