    When I use Firefox, the lines of text on a web page seem to be spaced further apart than for IE based browsers.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to reduce the space between lines in Firefox?

    Thanks.

    Hi Screamer

    Here's the screenies. You can see less forums with Firefox compared to Maxthon.

    Spikey, perhaps you should adjust the display settings in FF??

    Thanks Screamer.

    The thing is, by the time I've reduced the text size, so that the same amount of lines appear, the text is too small to read properly. It definitely seems to be something to do with the line spacing.

    Hello,

    It's probably rendering. IE engine - bad compliance with standards. Gecko engine - much better compliance with standards. Opera - very good compliance with standards.

    Whenever I write my articles, I always test them in Opera (but also FF). I don't care what they look like in IE. As far as I'm concerned, W3C standards are what should govern the look.

    Unfortunately, Wilders does not pass validation, so you cannot really be sure what causes the differences.

    Mrk
