Changing Post Font Size in Admin Area (3 posts)

    I did search and there was a similar post, but now I can't find it again! Anyway, I'm trying to increase the font size of the content in the Editing textarea on the "Write Post" admin page. I've tried adding a font-size tag to the CSS file wp-admin.css under #content, I tried adding a new style for textarea. Nothing is working. I tried everything listed in the previous post. It seemed to work once, but then it's wrong again and I'm not sure why.

    Please help, I'd really appreciate it. :)

    Where is your blog? the site linked to your name is not a WP site.

    Oh. Oops. I thought that was for my web site, not the WP site. Sorry, I'm developing this for a client. Their site is http://healthcarereport.tenneconomics.com, though I don't know how much good that will do you since my question was about the admin area.

    I don't want the font size to change on the main post. Just where the user is actually creating a new post. He says the text is miniscule and hard to read on his laptop, which seems to be the result of using ems.

    The actual line of code is on line 42 of wp-admin/edit_form.php: <div><textarea rows="<?php echo $rows; ?>" cols="40" name="content" tabindex="4" id="content"><?php echo $post->post_content ?></textarea></div>

    This line of code also appears in wp-admin/edit_form_advanced.php. From the previous post I was led to believe that would change the font size in the rich text editor.
