In typography, leading refers to the distance between the baselines of successive lines of type. The term originated in the days of hand-typesetting, when thin strips of lead were inserted into the forms to increase the vertical distance between lines of type.

In consumer-oriented word processing software, this concept is usually referred to as "line spacing" or "interline spacing."
