Subtle Change on iPod nano Pages

Apple made a subtle adjustment to its product page typography for the iPod nano, which makes the text easier to read. There's a slightly higher line-height value, giving each line a bit more room to breathe.

The screenshot below shows the iPod nano page on the left and the PowerBook page on the right.

And no, I don't run diffs on every single page. This one jumped right out at me.

Well spotted - line-height is probably one of the best things you can do to enchance online reading.

Also, just ordered a black 4gb model, fuck they look cool :D

The went a bit overboard IMHO... Space between lines is excellent, but that's too much.

I like the new line-height: slows me down, and I tend to concentrate on each word a little longer. When the text is closer together, my eyes tend to jump, in "summarize"-like fashion.
