Description: <$description$> adds space above and below

I have a cell with type. the cell height is set to 30px. The type is formatted using basic html and it looks fine. When I add the Description: <$description$> tag the cell becomes a lot taller than 30px.

Also I have 2 lines of type with different formatting, so I add the Description: <$description$> to each line, and i get a huge space between the two lines.

Is the extra space normal when you add the Description: <$description$> tag? Other than the extra space it works fine.

You'll probably find that CM adds a paragraph tag by default in some instances (somewhat frustrating) and you can generally correct this by either shifting your description tag into it's own cell or add:

p { margin: 0px; }

That should fix any teething issues. - Everything Email.

Short-hand margin and padding don't always work.

Best to specify each margin and each padding (i.e. top-margin:0px; bottom-margin:0px;... etc.)
