We overcompensated when we implemented the fix for AO3-5420: now there is too much space when a work blurb's stats wrap across two lines, making the lines feel disconnected.
This problem is more noticeable when browsing on a Mac than on Windows: Macs display the stats lines (and most of the site) in the font Lucida Grande, which has more vertical space built in to the font itself than the Windows font Lucida Sans Unicode.
However, Windows users may notice that there is more space between the stats lines (which were given line-height: 2.143 in AO3-5420) than the lines of tags (which have line-height: 1.5).
For consistency on Windows and prettiness on Mac, we should therefore reduce the line-height of the stats from 2.143 to 1.5.
On a Windows machine, a wrapped stats line should look roughly like the screenshot seen in the first comment of AO3-5420.

On the left is production and on the right is staging – definitely less space now! I’m on Safari 12.0.3 on MacOS 10.14.3.
Staging is on the left, production on the right. Less space on staging.
