Do you meant the [strut](https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#strut)? So now `line-height` applies only to inline-level boxes, but the root inline box inherits it from the block container, effectively replacing the following CSS2.1 quote?

> On a block container element whose content is composed of inline-level elements, 'line-height' specifies the minimal height of line boxes within the element.

If so, this should be explained somewhere.
