    Heh. No, actually, I had already been working on that Jolly Rancher (albeit not for the intended purpose of using it as a shiv), when the neighborhood bully (his name was Eugene) came along and started teasing me. I remember looking down at the candy in my hand, thinking how knife-like it looked. Then, when the bully grabbed me and held me in a headlock, I reacted without thinking and jabbed the candy-shiv into his thigh. He yelled and let me go, and ran home to his mom, who (I later heard, because she phoned my mom) had to dig out the broken bit of candy with a pair of tweezers.

    Is there any way to adjust the amount of blank space in between lines of text on a Web page? If yes, what kind of code can you use to do this in a Cascading Style Sheet?

    Is there anyone who can help Alenda complete the Texas Gameday site? Obviously, no February TX gameday because no website for the last 4 months.

    Does anyone have a holiday fudge recipe that uses Kraft's Marshmallow Fluff but does NOT have any nuts in it? Nuts in fudge are reprehensible and vile. I seem to recall a non-Rocky Road style fudge that used fluff, but cannot for the life of me remember when or where I ate it.

    Your desire to pack fudge with nuts is noted.

    I have a recipe somewhere for Ribbon Fantasy fudge, which is chocolate fudge on the bottom, peanut butter fudge on the top. I suppose if the nut hatred extends to peanut butter you could just make the chcolate layer. But I'd have to find the damn thing.

    Awesome. Nope, peanut butter is fine -- just nothing crunchy in my fudge.

    Yes, with line-height

    Example:
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body {line-height: 200%}
    </style>
    You could also use px or cm instead of the %;
    IIRC % is not in relation to standard line height but to the size of the font.

    Ribbon Fantasy Fudge

    3 cups sugar
    3/4 cup Parkay margarine
    2/3 evaporated milk
    6oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
    7 oz. Kraft marshmallow crème
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

    Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 6 tablespoons margarine and 1/3 cup milk in saucepan; bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling for 4 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid scorching. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate until melted. Add 1/2 jar of marshmallow creme and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; beat until well blended. Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Repeat with remaining ingredients, substituting peanut butter for chocolate . Spread peanut butter mixture over chocolate layer. Cool at room temperature. Cut into pieces.

    Nice! Except that I actually want to shrink the amount of space in between lines, not expand it. Thanks to the It's Man for the help!!!

    It's all coded in PHP with a MySQL backend. I don't know either of those things, so I think I'm doing pretty good considering... Well, except that I'm a terrible procrastinator and haven't touched the thing in like a month.

    I'm not at the "testing" stage yet, though. Just at the "OMG, I'm way over my head here stage." Honestly, though, I think sitting down with it and writing out the list of tables and how they map to each other will help out immensely.

    One of our new friends has a nut allergy and his wife was talking about making fudge like this. The recipe is on the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Fluff jar.
