All Roman and body faces are cast on this line, as well as the leaders, etc. This line
is so placed that properly proportioned descenders can be cast entirely upon the body,
free of kerning, from the smallest to largest size. All Uniform-Line cast faces will line
together body for body without justification; and, by the use of point leads or slugs,
one size body can be readily made to line with all other sizes. In the majority of cases
the difference in line between any two bodies is two points or a multiple thereof. Text
