Home Forums CSS Imbalanced line-height Re: Imbalanced line-height


I think (as typographic newbie) it might be a font with a small x-height you’re referring to. With line-height the extra space always gets evenly divided (so space above font = space below font = (line-height – font-size) / 2). I’d go with top/bottom margins or relative positioning (disclaimer: might be bad advice D: )
