Leading (or line height) is spacing between two lines of text. Leading has a direct impact on legibility. Well-designed leading helps eye travel from one text line to another. The standard leading is 120% the point size of the font. But of course, it can vary according to the typeface needs.

Tracking is the spacing between all the characters of a font. Properly selected tracking can make the copy feel pleasant to the eye.
