Default Charis SIL line spacing is horrible. I don't know why the people who made the font hasn't fixed it? Gentium does not have this problem.

Typo Line Gap in a KF8 does affect line spacing.
In a Mobi Book Typo Line Gap does nothing.
Line Gap doesn't seem to do anything in KF8 or Mobi.

I did discover something else while testing.
Fonts with numbers in their name wont work on a KF8 it must be all letters. It works fine on a mobi book but not a KF8.
