 Yes, but not always. some designs use a fixed line space no matter 
what the font size, especially as a 10pt font may appends the same 
size as say 13pt of a different font, as font designers have a lot of 
say over how big the font is with different pt sizes. Also the use of 
a baseline grid would mean that you would want the same line spacing 
mo-matter what the size of text. (usually that of the largest)
