Changing Font size downwards gives too much space between lines..? (5 posts)

    Hi all, and thank you in advance for any help.

    On my http://www.newsturtle.com site I am using the Newyorker - 30 template, which has a standard font setting of 14px for the main text. I thought that was too large, so I decreased the size to 12px. It shows up well in the 2 listing area, but in the main content posts it gives too much space between the lines. I played around with several setting in the style.css and in the index.css, but can not find the correct are to influence this.

    Could anybody tell where to look?

    Thank you again.

    In styles css find the line that starts with

    #content p{

    and look for:

    line-height: 20px;

    Delete it and see if that helps.

    Yep, that's the line. I was playing around in Firebug
    and changed it to 10px. Looks better than deleting it. :)

    Yea, that probably is better than deleting it. Changing it to (line-height: normal;) may work as well...I'm no css expert, but I have that in some of my other applications and it seems to work well. Just try different settings and look at it in different browsers.
