if you define 'line-height' in your <body> and then try to do pixel-
precise layouts (tables with some sliced images), you'll find that 
the line-height attribute will take any white space and apply it, 
causing your pixel-precise layouts to fall apart...

as such, i never define line-height in the <body>

on top of that, using % attributes for line-height, coupled with 
nesting them, has interesting results in NN4.x... so defining them 
in your <body>, if you plan on chaning them elsewhere, can be a 
recipe for trouble...
