Line-height too large issues - still a problem in Firefox?

P: n/a
I'm having problems with excessive line spacing in FireFox. This
seems to happen when "line-height" is set to "normal" when a large
font is in effect, then there's a font change to a smaller font in
HTML at a lower level. It looks like line height gets "stuck" at the
value in effect in the outer block. DOM inspector shows the line height
as "normal" on the small text, but the line spacing renders too big.

This is with Firefox 2, so it shouldn't be the old Firefox
line height bug ("https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196270").

(This is a Greasemonkey application, so only Firefox really matters.)

What units are you using to set line-height? This behaviour is
deliberately like this _if_ you specify units. So for most purposes,
line-height ought to be set with a dimensionless number instead.
