screenshot on major newspaper site (setting default font to Meiryo)

Meiryo (メイリオ), new Japanese font on Windows since Vista, has large internal leading (IIRC). This causes inline boxes too tall. So, their border-top and border-bottom are laid out too far from the glyphs and may overlap with previous or next line.

Unfortunately, <abbr> and <acronym> have same trouble with Meiryo since they use border-bottom instead of CSS 3 text-decoration.
