Body is a typography component primarily used within Spectrum components and for blocks of text.
Body can be displayed in serif or sans serif (default).
Body has a variety of sizes available. These sizes are defined using T-shirt sizing in order to support multiple scales without direct correlation to pixel values.
From the design point of view, each component has a number of options. These options and their names are platform agnostic, and each implementation should adapt these to fit into their framework.

S (application UI)
Body uses a 1.5× multiplier for Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew scripts. Han scripts (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), use a 1.7× multiplier to ensure readability. This applies to all Spectrum fonts as well as their fallback fonts.
Top margins are the body font size divided by 1.125. Bottom margins are 0.25× the body font size.
A theme is an intentional, systematic customization of Spectrum. It has unique visual attributes. For more information, view Theming.
Body remains the same across themes.
