Slingin’ Hot Leading

Manually adjusting line-height for optimum readability across a bunch of media queries is kind of a pain. So I made a thing. One sets a minimum width at which the adjustment starts, a maximum element width where it stops, and a minimum and maximum line height to adjust through. This isn’t especially well-tested, but seems to check out in all the big desktop browsers (including IE).


  • Binding to resize makes me nauseous to begin with, and in this first pass I’m going about it in a particularly gross way.
  • There’s a demo right hurr.
  • Full credit to Tim Brown for the post that got my lazy ass in gear on this, and the awesome name.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
