Gmail desktop clients ignoring line-height and adding more vertical spacing?
I've noticed that Gmail desktop clients have a tendency to ignore the line-height property when inlined and is adding more vertical spacing / line height than I want.
In the following screenshots, the gray text in the middle has an inline CSS styling with
line-height:20px;. I tried adding an
!important declaration, but no effect.
Supposedly Gmail supports the line-height property, so I'm not sure why it's adding more vertical spacing than it should.
How it looks in Litmus Builder:
And how it looks in Gmail desktop:
Any insights into why Gmail does this or how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
