Dear Jonathan,

I tried various values for \lineskiplimit and the spacing is indeed better.
But I fear that ledmac does really need the exact values of character's height
and depth to do its thing properly. The page still looks like there are random
values of vertical glue scattered around, even if I use a single OT font. I
look forward to your updated version...

thanks,
