Bootstrap Text/Typography

Bootstrap’s Default Settings

Bootstrap’s global default font-size is 14px, with a line-height of 1.428.

This is applied to the <body> element and all paragraphs (<p>).

In addition, all <p> elements have a bottom margin that equals half their computed line-height (10px by default).
