   I can only speak for my little corner of 'the press,' but I do try to
confirm what I write about before I make it public-- thus my question here.
I posted a message on Usenet explaining that I'd been incorrect, and that
MSIE actually had things right.  With that mostly cleared up, now we're
embroiled in an exploration of all the ways using 'line-height' can mess up
a page in MSIE4.0/Mac, and Todd's getting depressed on us.  But he's
entitled... and maybe not too far off the mark.
