Line spacing

I'm trying to adjust the line spacing in the composer window (not the preview). I'm not sure what settings affect this property and I haven't been able to figure it out via tinkering with the style files.

Here is what I currently have--lines are approx double spaced:

What I would prefer is single-spaced lines, as in the "plain" style that shipped with MMD (I think):

What setting or set of variables should I work with to adjust this?

    The "Line Height" option in preferences, and the "lineHeight" key in
    style sheets are used to control spacing. You can set it to whatever
    you like.

    Got it. Thanks! The style file I had been using (myword) was a little hard to grok—I couldn’t tell what variables only applied to the HTML preview window and which to the editor, but a quick search for “lineheight” did the trick.
