    I don't understand; there are now three lines involved, not two. My
    issue is the too large space (margin) above lines with footnote marks,
    and line-height-shift-adjustment seemed to introduce a new issue namely
    too large space (margin) below these lines.

    Anyways, I guess there was no real misunderstanding :)

    Thanks, I'll see how I can set that in my driver ..
