Refine your Web type with this crash course on the CSS line-height property

Created by Russ Weakley of Max Design, this presentation on the CSS line-height property  is the perfect crash course for anyone looking to refine their Web type.

Weakley’s guide is certainly a must-see for beginners, but even experienced Web designers may end up learing something new, because as the creator notes, CSS line-height is far more complex than it first appears.
