If the property is set on a block-level element whose content is
composed of inline-level elements, it specifies the minimal height of
each generated inline box.
If the property is set on an inline-level element, it specifies the
exact height of each box generated by the element. (Except for inline
replaced elements, where the height of the box is given by the 'height'
property.)

Whereas correct would be:

<blockquote>
The computed value for this property on a block-level element specifies
the minimal height of each rendered inline descendant box of that
element. However, inline descendant boxes that are also descendants of a
block-level descendant of the element are not affected.
The computed value for this property on an inline-level element
specifies the minimum height of each box generated by the element.
(Except for inline replaced elements, where the content height of the
box is given by the 'height' property.)
