    I am trying to add line-height to my blog post from firebug but the changes are not shown.

    Can anyone from the community try with their firebug that why line-height is not working for class ‘headlineleft’ i.e. the post title. The sample page is

    It’s picking up the line-height from #content. You’ll need to be a little more specific. You already have a #content h1 {}, if you add the line-height to that it will work.

    Aha, thanks Doc… it worked like a charm.

    I wish there was some kind of thanks button in vanilla forum so that i can show my gratitude.

    Related: I have noticed a very annoying case in which the line-height doesn’t work no matter what. It probably has a reason, but instead of searching the “why” I found the “how” to make it work quickly.

    item {
    display: block;
    line-height: 1; }

    (The “1” can be whatever you want, of course)

    About 6 years and a half and Doc’s single line (“It’s picking up the line-height from #content. “) made my day! After an extremely frustating day of searching, trying, tweaking…. this line solved my problem with my bi-lingual site. I had set the size and height for my indic font and the same thing was being applied to the roman font ignoring all further inputs.
    Thanks a lot!

    I thought to myself today: “I haven’t been on the CSS-Tricks forum in a while, let’s see if I can answer any questions. Oh! This looks like a topic I can answer. Wait a second…”

    Amazing. Happy that my six-years-ago self is still helping people!
