Reduce the gap after a new line

Our company uses foswiki as documentation platform. We use many short sentences and new lines. Every new line is the end of a paragraph.

Is there a solution to reduce the unused space between two paragraphs? I tried to find an entry in the PatternSkin style.css file, but i didn't find anything.

Foswiki renders empty lines as (html) paragraph elements. If you look in the html source code you can see this happen. p elements have a margin of 1em (one line height). This can be made 0 in CSS, but it will mean that all texts become very condensed.

This is a small test to see how to do this (see the wiki text of this page).

Original text:

These

are

a couple of

lines.

With p styles set to zero margins:

These

are

a couple of

lines.

Thank you, this is exactly what i want. Which CSS file do I have to change? I think the value 0.3em or 0.5em would be perfect.

Best if you create a theme css fileor sub skin so that your changes are not overwritten after an update.

In a text file, write
.foswikiTopic p {
margin: .3em;
}

Save as smallp.css and attach it to a topic, for instance Main.SitePreferences. Link USERSTYLEURL to that attachment, for example:

   * Set USERSTYLEURL = %PUBURLPATH%/%USERSWEB%/SitePreferences/smallp.css

It's working perfectly, thanks.
