Windows Phone line-height

Hello CM'rs,

I'm wondering if any of you have had success with developing for Windows Phone (not Windows Mobile, my clients don't care about that anymore), My campaigns look great on Android devices and more so on iOS, but my Windows Phone results on Litmus look well, sloppy.

Aside from the fact that I can only use <font>'s "size" attribute to size my fonts, I have no way of controlling line-height. Every bit of text has a line-height identical to the font-size, even if i give the line-height style to both the font tag and the containing <td>.

So- any help with a workable line-height solution in Windows Phone would be greatly appreciated.

As a side note (in case one of the mods reads this), is Windows Phone ever going to return to the CSS guide? Much to my chagrin I know a ton of people are going for the new Nokia for its incredible camera without realizing the drawbacks of the WP OS - no turn by turn directions, no copy-paste, IE mobile / 9, etc.

Hi there zazzyzeph, line height issues are really tricky! In the past, I've used margin/padding as a workaround in some situations, but curious to hear what others have done to tackle a similar lack of support in Lotus et al.

It's highly possible, we have to look at getting ourselves a Nokia, too :) I've added this to my to-do list, so will let you know if it's something we add to the guide at a later date. Thanks for the suggestion!
