If you want this fixed please submit it to our issue tracker,
otherwise it is liable to be ignored.

Some brief analysis shows this is due to the css rule:

.curvedboxcontainer h1 {
font-family: Passion One, Helvetica, san-serif;
font-size: 36px;
color: #b66222;
line-height: 90%;
}

It appears the bounding box height is scaled by 90% but not the text
itself. I also note NetSurf falls back to the sans-serif font choice
which should not be a factor.
