Re: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-03 Thread Simon Pascal Klein
Line-height (leading) is measured from baseline[1] to baseline rather  
than from the ‘end’ of a glyph the the ‘tip’ of another. It is  
essentially impossible to align ‘perfectly’ the top of say an  
uppercase character to a horizontal line above it in CSS because of  
this, and because many uppercase glyphs often are ‘shorter’ than  
lowercase ascender glyphs (e.g. ‘h’ in ‘The’ will often be taller than  
the capital ‘T’; here the ‘h’ reaches the topline)—this occurs notably  
in serif typefaces. It is also important to note that optically size  
12 Arial may not be the same as another font at size 12, and thus can  
also apply for the standard leading when size and leading are set at  
1:1.


Finally differing font raster/sub pixel engines will render type  
differently (contrast ClearText with Apple’s engine and Apple Advanced  
Typography (AAT)).


I think here I would have to echo either Matijs’ comment regarding the  
pixel-perfect designs on the web or, alternatively, in aligning the  
top of a word or phrase to a horizontal line (say a to ‘hang’ from a  
coloured shape above it) just place it up high enough that even if  
another font or engine were used it’ll be overlapping with the shape  
enough to avoid dropping out of it due to some rendering or alternate  
font. For an example of this see the text “17 Ottobre ’09” on http://uxcamp.it/ 
 — it’s Helvetica Neue Bold and switching to Arial still keeps it  
looking spiffy. (:

This doesn't look to me like a line-height topic at all. If you  
increase the line-height, the lines of text within each paragraph  
will separate from one another, and that isn't what your gif  
illustrates. It looks more like a (default) line-height of 1.


Instead, this looks like a simple matter of applying padding   
margins to the wrapper div its paragraphs.


Now, if we're to take your gif literally, it looks like you've got  
17px between the two paragraphs.  That implies:


   div
   {
   padding-top: 20px;
   padding-bottom: 3px;
   }
   div p
   {
   margin-bottom: 17px;
   }

   div
20px
   psome text/p
17px
   psome more text/p
17px
3px

Re: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-02 Thread Matijs

 I frequently have to work with pixel-perfect design


http://aspnetresources.com/blog/dear_art_director.aspx


 , and I'm always having trouble with line-height in particular. Please take
 a look at this example: http://www.hellobenlau.net/wsg/index.html

 http://www.hellobenlau.net/wsg/index.html

 I'm wondering if there was a way to top align the text to its line-height.
 So say, with text size 20px, could the top of the 'T' be aligned to the top
 of the pink box?
 How does the 'gap' above and below the text gets calculated?


 As far as I know, browsers always render a bit of extra space above
and below to allow for accents, descenders, ascenders and such. Please
bear in mind that users tend to like line-heights of 1.2 or a bit
bigger. If you can, try to introduce a vertical rhythm in your texts
and your users will thank you even more :)

RE: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-01 Thread Ant Tears
Hi Ben,
It seems that the short answer to your question is a base line-height of 0.8 
(yup, unitless).
My guess would have been the value 1 but I don't know enough about browser 
default styles to say why 0.8 seems to work.
I've only checked this using IE8 and Firefox 3.5 using the developer tool bar, 
so there's a fair chance I'm talking crap, but it's probably an avenue worth 
investigating.

As with so many things CSS my knowledge comes directly from Eric Meyer, so I'll 
link his site.

Re: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-01 Thread Russ Weakley

Hey Ben,

That additional space you see above the letters is set aside for  
diacritical marks (umlaut etc).


If you replace the content within the 23 pixel paragraph with the  
content below, you should see that all the special character marks  
sit above the letters and fill this empty space.


Try adding this to the 23 pixel paragraph:
Ugrave;Yuml;Ouml;Otilde;Ocirc;Oacute;Ograve;Ntilde;Iuml;Icirc; 
Iacute;Igrave;Euml;Ecirc;Egrave;Aring;Auml;Atilde;Agrave;


How would you remove this space? The mind boggles. You are trying to  
mess with anonymous inline boxes. The actual inline boxes that wrap  
around text.

http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#anonymous

I do not think that reducing the line height will resolve the issue  
as this will more than likely close the space BETWEEN lines - not  
reduce the height of the anonymous inline boxes themselves.


Thanks
Russ

Re: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-01 Thread Joseph Taylor

Ben,

On the spacing, the spaces you're fighting with are a combination of 
line-height, margin and padding.


Each browser will implement their own defaults, so resetting the 
defaults with a reset stylesheet has become a popular technique.


For example, if you apply a line like this to your page:

* {
  margin: 0 !important;
  padding: 0 !important;
  }

You should see everything collapse.

Follow that with a:

line-height: XXpx;

and you should see the results you're looking for.

Begging your pardon, but I think this solution may lead to new problems.
Using that margin and padding reset is likely to stop some form
elements working in older browsers. Better to define the margins and
padding you want on the elements that need them, in my opinion.

Specifying the line-height in pixels works differently from browser to
browser, some browsers increasing the line-height along with text size,
while others retain the same pixel height when text is enlarged.

I hesitate to post this, as I wish I had something more constructive to
contribute. Sadly, I don't know how to achieve what Ben asks.

Cordially,

Re: [WSG] working with line-height

2009-07-01 Thread Ben Lau
Hi Georg,

Close, but this poses bit of layout issue surrounding the text.
This is what I'm trying to achieve: http://hellobenlau.net/wsg/eg.gif
So there'll be a div with padding top and bottom of 20px, and with text
inside. If I do:

div style=padding:20px 0
   psome text/p
/div

The gap would include both the padding and the anonymous inline boxes
(thanks Russ), which works out to be 20px. Could there perhaps be a way to
calculate the amount of white-space for these anonymous inline boxes?

I'm not trying to achieve exact look across all browsers, I understand it's
impossible. But I'm trying to achieve to make it look like the design at
least.. in 1 browser (just so my designers are happy).

Thanks.

That's a very big negative, given the use of !important on the global

I'm mistaken (and it is possible), the global reset has some issues with
forms and various other elements that once set cannot be undone, and has
since fallen by the way. There are other methods of achieving similar
results however (see Eric Meyer's reset link above).  At the very least,
if the global reset is your preferred choice, do *not* use !important
with it or all your margins and paddings are going to disappear on all
elements, and you are in for a world of hurt. Maybe you're a masochist

To clarify what I do in the real world:

I use a reset stylesheet then reapply my own defaults so my own form

You're correct about the !important declaration - that shouldn't be

Set the line-height in em, and approximate apparent whitespace for the
chosen font family - also in em, and you'll get something like this...
http://www.gunlaug.no/tos/alien/bl/test_09_0702-b.html
...with the same amount of whitespace (only the pixel-sized div-padding)
on top and bottom of div, regardless of font-size.

I have broken one paragraph in two, but you can use separate
paragraphs if you give the top and bottom one classes and only subtract
the apparent whitespace from top and bottom respectively.

I'm not trying to achieve exact look across all browsers, I 
understand it's impossible. But I'm trying to achieve to make it look
 like the design at least.. in 1 browser (just so my designers are

Visual designers don't care much about reality on the web, so they
should be easy to please ;-)

FWIW: I often pull paragraphs and headlines this way, and most browsers
handle it quite well. I usually don't bother to count pixels though, as
in most cases it just has to look right.
