This is because of standards vs. almost standards mode, triggered by the doctype difference. It's why we need to switch to HTML5 across the board and tweak everything to work right in standards mode, then kill XHTML 1.0 Transitional support. Supporting both modes will be too much of a hassle. There will be a number of minor rendering differences like this, but nothing should be a big deal and they can be dealt with as they're reported during the transition phase, IMO.

  • 1.18.0 and 1.19.0 have been released already.
  • Moving open bugs targeted for 1.18.0 or 1.19.0 to Mysterious future.
  • Please re-target them to 1.19.x or 1.20.0 if needed.

I think i might have found the possible root cause of why it differs in the two modes.

Apparently in HTML5: "an inline element, that appears in HTML5 inline elements defer to its parent 'block' element's line-height"

I think this is the relevant spec text:

(FWIW, this is not due to HTML5 per se -- using an HTML 4.01 Strict doctype would also have triggered it, for instance.)

Is this fixed? It looks fixed for me.

TheDJ claimed this task.

This was fixed quite a while ago.
