I should have written:

With line-height:normal (which is the default), each line box is layered 
out so all characters of the various Latin Scripts are enclosed. This 
includes the letters with acutes and the lowest descender (the Greek 
letter Xi ~ ξ). When line-height is less than normal, the top half 
leading of a new line can completely overlap the bottom half leading of 
a previous line.

FYI. Line boxes do not overlap. They can be zero height where each new 
line is completely overlapping the previous line.
