PDF CSS problem: leading (space between lines) is not rendering properly

I have been working on a custom pdf page with CSS for quite a while and have not been able to standardize spacing between text lines within a mult-line field (billing address). What do I need to change to add the uniform spacing? I have not moved my css into an external style sheet, though I plan to.

 

 

My challenge is with this portion of the page:

 

                <apex:outputField value="{!quote.BillingAddress__c}" styleClass=" header3" />
                <apex:outputField value="{!quote.Created_Date__c}" />
                <span style="margin-left:-176px; margin-top: 500px;">
                <apex:outputLabel value="">
                <apex:outputField value="{!quote.BillingAddress2__c}"/>
                </apex:outputLabel>
                                </span>
                <span style="float:left; margin-left:0px; margin-top:-15px;">
                <apex:outputField value="{!quote.ExpirationDate}"/>
                                </span>
                <span style="float:left; margin-left:-176px; margin-top:-15px; z-index:-8;">
                <apex:outputLabel value="">
                <apex:outputfield value="{!quote.BillingCountry}"/>
                </apex:outputLabel>
                </span>   

 

 

 

 

Here is the entire visualforce page. I am not including the apex controllers as they are not applicable for this question.
