Once all existing line-heights have been removed then a simple
div, p , blockquote {line-height: 1.0}
in the kobo_extra.css file should work for most epubs, with the caveat that Dropcaps and long chapter headings may no longer look too good.
That seems to work okay. I will have to try it on something with drop caps for my own curiousity.

I doubt that my friend cares about drop caps. He only gets 4-5 words per line at the minimum font-size he can read and he would like it larger. Tablet hurts his eyes.

Now I am more confused but probably the heat. Thanks
