Chapter 15.  Formatting Text with Styles > Setting the Line Height

Setting the Line Height

Line height refers to a paragraph's leading, that is, the amount of space between each line in a paragraph. Using a large line height can sometimes make your body text easier to read. A small line height for headers (with more than one line) often makes them look classier.

To set the line height:

1.
Type line-height: .

2.
Type n , where n is a number that will be multiplied by the font-size to obtain the desired line height.

Or type p% where p% is a percentage of the font size.

Or type a , where a is an absolute value in points, pixels, or whatever.
