This is also observed with any block box - see the attached example 
and compare with some of the popular browsers. The CSS spec 
basically says the height of a block box is 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#normal-block>:

> If it only has inline-level children, the height is the distance

<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#line-height>.
