On a side note, a search of the code shows that "-fx-line-spacing" is
a CSS property.. but it isn't mentioned anywhere in the CSS Reference
I've created to cover that case.

Should a better cross-reference or mention of CSS properties in the Javadocs?

Many properties can be set via calling methods or through CSS, but
when browsing the Javadocs the related CSS properties are not

The package docs for javafx.scene mention the CSS Reference Guide at
the end of the description, and careful reading of that document

I think all that is needed is to mention in the JavaDocs if the
property is configurable from CSS or not. Or at least mention the
exceptions to the rule.  For example most properties of Labeled are
configurable via CSS, but "lineSpacing" and "mnemonicParsing" are
*not* mentioned among the CSS properties.
