Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a page with a passage of text in Courier New or monospace fonts (Set the line-height too, if you want; the problem still occurs) 2. Highlight a couple of words on one of the lines with either a <b> or <strong> tag 3. When viewing the page, highlight the text and notice the increase of line-height where the bolded text is. Actual Results: The line-height becomes 1px more than it should be. Expected Results: The line-height should be the same as the rest of the text.
