tracking/leading standards
0

I am trying to understand the tracking and leading relationship in typographic specimen sheets.

I see popular ratios of:
6/10
7/11
9/13
10/14
11/15
12/16

Is this sort of the standard or is it subject to the font and the cap height, etc?

Thanks!

is it subject to the font and the cap height

very much so; ascenders and descenders fit into the mix, as well...
