Why isn't there a relative measure unit alongside 'em', that corresponds to the whole line-height, like 'em' plus what's beneath the 
baseline? That could be useful for symbols or emoticons, where you could set { height: 1.0unit } in order to avoid the line-height to 
increase due to the inserted image.
