I have some light troops ready to base, and I think I'm going to base them just the same overall frontage as my other line troops. Of course they might be deployed in skirmish, but for line formation, I'm assuming similar frontage per man??? Any disagreements here???

Specifically, these are all 1796-1801 time period -
Russian Jagers
Austrian Freikorps
Austrian Grenz

A lot depends on the rules you are going to use. For 1796-1801, you probably only want one skirmisher on your usual close order bases.

In line they would have the same frontage per man as regular infantry.

Yes, I misread your post. Light infantry in line would indeed have covered the same frontage as any other infantry.
