5769Using CSS to space lists & paragraphs
- Mar 1, 2007Boy do I feel weird posting a question, knowing things will always be
different. At least, everytime we post, we can't help but have Jody
flash through our thoughts, right?
I'm trying to space my paragraphs and list items similarly to how I
do it in Word. For example, let's say I have a Justified paragraph.
Rather than a double carriage return in between paragraphs, I set the
bottom row (and this would apply to a list item or the last row of
one if it wrapped), to have 1/2 a row height after it. This creates
a nice little space that gives the eye a break, but doesn't waste so
All the line height details with CSS apply height to an entire line
or paragraph, with the space above it. If I'm wrong, do you know how
I can do this?
I'm thinking I need to create something for a transparent .gif or
something that would occupy that space. However, I have issues with
determining size. I don't understand what an em is, a px, etc. I
know what it IS, but now how big it is. Or isn't.
Does anyone have any ideas on this? Sorry it's as clear as mud.
