Reason being that I've received occasional comments about the very tight 
spacing and even I admit that it _does_ seem a bit too close. I'm thinking 
perhaps a point or two lower would suffice.

If you don't see it the same way, leave it alone.

Remember, as I often tell folks, being a tech writer is truly thankless: while 
it's common for folks to call and gush about how well this or that product 
looks, works or feels, the only time we (generally speaking) get feedback is 
when typos, missing punctuation, bad spellings, etc, occur. Oh, and when the 
original poorly written (usually non-U.S.) documentation is shipped because 
it's deemed "good enough".

Once in awhile, when casually discussing occupations with others and I mention 
that I'm a technical writer, I'm sometimes asked, "Do you write fiction?" Those 
who have seen some of my previous rants here will understand when I sometimes I 
say "Yes."
