line height in Live Mail via Firefox

Having an issue with my emails line height displaying incorrectly (in comparison to other clients).

For starters i never normally declare the line height (leave it alone as it does not seem to supported across the board).  If i need space between paragraphs i tend to size emty td's in rows.

However, i have just started testing in Hotmail via Firefox and the line height displays differently to any other client.

An example of the code that i use is below:

<td valign="top"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="1" color="#E89001">some text</font></td>

The lines appear extremely spaced out in comparison to all my other cients and i am assuming it is something to do with the line height - i could be wrong.

It does not seem to give me any problems when the font size is declared as "2" however.

Can anyone help?

That's a tough one - have you tried to explicitly set the line height and font size together?
