The test referenced in the subject says that there should be a 9px gap
between each line.
However, the line height in this case is applied to a block element (p).
CSS 2.1 Section 10.8.1 says "On a block-level
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#block-level> , table-cell,
table-caption or inline-block element whose content is composed of
inline-level <http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#inline-level>
elements, 'line-height' specifies the minimal height of line boxes
within the element."
So should the test description be modified to say that there should be
*at least* a 9px gap between each line?
Best wishes,
