Always make sure your baseline is respected or your designs will kick your ass!

Sadly, I've never designed with one, but definitely interested now... are you using a 200% line height?
@Matt Lackey I highly recommend working with one as it will inform your vertical rhythm when you move from a PSD mock up to production CSS.
I have my own hack-ish method of dealing with aligning to a baseline grid in Photoshop that would probably confuse the hell out of you if I tried to explain it. There is this video tutorial that is very similar to my method though.
Thanks for the video Erik. Big help!
I've got to say that ever since you pushed baseline upon me, I haven't stopped using it. Nice work Erik!
@Eric 'WizKid' Odom I hope I was at least nice about pushing baseline on you. ;-)
@Erik Ford, yeah, I guess you were nice... lol I learned a lot in that brief time, and for that I thank you! :-D
