I don't think it will: I had similar (I think) problems with the space between
paragraphs, where I'd styled paras so that they had more interlinear space than
normal. Then, in the gap between paras this increased space wasn't honoured - so
the lines had gotten closer together. Because line-height wasn't honoured at the
ends of paras adding more didn't make any difference... the only workaround I
found was to add either margin or padding to the top of the paras, which forced
the extra space that should have been there all along...

it will grow up into a beehive.'
   Piglet wasn't quite sure about this.
   'Or a piece of a honeycomb, so as not to waste too much. Only then 
I might only get a piece of a beehive, and it might be the wrong piece,
where the bees were buzzing and not hunnying. Bother.'
