    I have the Skirmish theme and want to change the the size of the "title pages" (it is too big) that features on top of every page. I read somewhere that you need to edit* the style.css. But how and where can one change that?

    Thanks in advance.

    On line 117 you'll find:
    h1{font-size:28px; font-family:"Lusitana", georgia, helvetica, arial;}

    - Try using tool like Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work. http://getfirebug.com/

    So I need a web editor? I still have the good old Frontpage 2000; should that work as well?
    And where can I find the style.css file: themes > skirmish > style.css?

    I have no experience with Frontpage 2000

    No - just use a text editor like Notpad+ or TextPad.

    with Frontpage I can import the style file and the above mentioned line 117 shows up. In this case h1 (etc).

    h1{font-size:28px; font-family:"Lusitana", georgia, helvetica, arial;}
    h2{font-size:26px; font-family:"Lusitana", helvetica, arial;}
    h3{font-size:24px; font-family:"georgia", helvetica, arial;}
    h4{font-size:22px; font-family:"georgia", helvetica, arial;}
    h5{font-size:18px; font-family:"georgia", helvetica, arial;}
    h6{font-size:16px; font-family:"georgia", helvetica, arial;}
    h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6 {
    	clear: both;
    }

    What the other lines are for? Now that we mention it, I also would like to change the font of the header.

    Thanks for the quick answers!

    Assuming you are referring to the CSS posted above, they are for formatting the other heading tags and for applying some additional CSS to all heading tags. If CSS is not something you've used before, I'd recommend having a look at:
