In Word 2007 and Word 2010, the spaces between paragraphs were taller than the spaces between each line within a paragraph. This looks more familiar to a web-native user as browsers usually handle text in a very similar way.
In some cases, however, a user might want to switch back to regular spacing because of a necessary style or preference.
