As you can see in the screenshot below, the current line-height of 17px is too low. After a try with firebug, I'd suggest to use a minimum line-height: 20px;.

But line-height must not have a unit. It's just a multiplication factor of the font size... (currently set for this definition: tr.comment > td in all.css acc. to firebug). I'd suggest to set it to 1.5. You could also reduce the top/bottom padding for a.comment-user.owner (which currently overwrites a.comment-user for some reason).

Thanks for the suggestion. I agree with the line-height issue, especially WP site tends to have a lot of code blocks in comments. I have changed it to 1.5em as you suggested. The change will be in the next deployment.

  • Thanks. Btw: line-height has no unit.
