Just saw that, very cool !

is fine).

The line-height fixes the problem of the list on the home page under “Projects” that has
the lines too close together because the line-height was set to 20px and the font-size is
18px, leaving only 2px between lines. Letting it back to its default fixes that problem. 

The border-radius also makes it more consistent with the look of the buttons that also have
rounded corners.

Let’s vote now :) Let’s get this thing published :)

on the home page. I tested by deactivating it (removing it) and it seems the default setting
works better on the pages I tested.
