CSS: Vertical space within a paragraph

This entry is part 26 of 26 in the series Basic CSS

The line height is the amount of space between each line.

We can express the line height in pixel or as a percentage.

If we use a percentage, the browser multiplies the line height percentage by the font size to derive a spacing amount.

        #spacing {
            line-height: 200%;

        #spacing_px {
            line-height: 30px;
