    typography question

    how do you determine the right amount of leading for type on webpages? I'm using CSS and chose 11 pixel Trebuchet but I'm trying to figure out the right amount of line-spacing that would suit this font and size. Most of the books I have discuss leading for print, not for the web.

    I realize this is sort of a CSS question but I think it's also a design question.

    Why not just use your own judgement. Certainly in print design I very rarely use the auto settings for the leading on text as different styles of type require different spacing.
