Elaborate Burn

A brief follow-up to my previous post on customizing Dichotomy’s fonts: Some users (well, okay, just @spinor) have reported that vertical scrollbars appear on <blockquote> and <pre> elements when using certain typefaces, including Source Code Pro. This is a consequence of these fonts’ character boxes being too tall for the line height (1.2) that Dichotomy uses. You can fix this problem by resetting the height to the font’s default in your custom CSS:

body {
    font-family: "MyFont", monospace;
    line-height: normal;
