Changing font, kerning and leading? (4 posts)

    I am trying to change the font, kerning and leading in my blog located here: http://www.thecreativejunkie.com

    I'd like to change my font and then make it a bit smaller with a bit more room between the letters, as well as between lines.

    I don't know where in my style sheet to change all these settings. I am not well versed in CSS at all.

    I'm wondering if anyone has the option in their tool bar to look at my CSS and advise me?

    I've tried adding a new font name in front of all the listed fonts after "body" and then I'm assuming I also need to add that font name where it says "#wrap"? Is there anywhere else I need to add it?

    I've also tried changing the line height to a value that is 150% of my new font size (based on what I googled) but I'm not seeing any difference in appearance, even when I tweak it down to 75% or up to 200%.

    Thank you very much for any advice.

    First glance at your CSS, you missed putting back the closing curly braces in your declarations for body and #wrap, specifically in your theme's (limau-orange-01) style.css.

    body { font-family: geneva, "lucida grande", verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Tahoma, Verdana, Sans-Serif; font-size:12px; line-height: 14px; }

    #wrap { width:1000px; font-family: geneva, "lucida grande", verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Tahoma, Verdana, Sans-Serif; font-size:14px; color:#000000; margin:0; }

    Little things can make a big difference. Good luck

    Thanks for your response, mercime. I did see a closing bracket for each of those, but they were on the next line. But I appreciate your help.

    I wound up contacting my blog designer and having her change it for me. I was really disappointed as I want to be able to do this kind of change on my own.
