CSS Line Height Property

CSS Line Height Property is used to define the distance between the lines in text HTML elements.

As your requirement, you can also change the distance between the lines through line-height Property.

Example 1- Use of Line Height Property for increase the distance between the lines in p element

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
	<style>
	  .height 
	  {
		line-height: normal;
	  }
	  .line-height
	  {
		line-height: 20px;
	  }
	  .line-height1
	  {
		line-height: 25px;
	  }
	</style>
  </head>
  
  <body>
		<h2>Examples Code</h2>
	
	<h3> Line-Height Example with normal Spaces between the lines</h3>
	<p class="height">Lorem ipsum augue mauris augue neque gravida in fermentum et. Venenatis urna cursus eget nunc scelerisque viverra mauris. </p>
		
	<h3>Line-Height Of 3px Example</h3>
	<p class="line-height">Lorem ipsum pis in eu mi bibendum neque. At erat pellentesque adipiscing commodo elit at. Platea dictumst quisque sagittis purus sit amet volutpat.</p>
	
	<h3> Line-Height Of 4px  Example</h3>
	<p class="line-height1">Lorem ipsum egestas erat imperdiet sed euismod nisi porta. Nec sagittis aliquam malesuada bibendum arcu commodo.</p>
	
	</body>

In the above given code, we define the line-height property to an HTML Paragraph Element. Where we apply the line-height values of 20px and 25px spaces between the lines.
