There are very few use cases that require 
line-heights with units (indeed, I can't even 
think of a single one).  I would strongly 
recommend that you use unitless line-height 
values as a matter of course.  Only if you are 
dead sure that you want the COMPUTED value of a 
line-height to inherit should you use a unit 
value.  Using units on line-heights is a very 
common way to break a website.
