changing size of category text in post (9 posts)

    On my site (http://www.mountyscorner.com/blog) I'm trying to find the CSS entry for the element controlling the category entry at the bottom of each post. The font for just the category is very compressed and small compared to the rest of the text on that line, and I'd like to change it. I looked in the index.php file and couldn't see anything that should set it off like it is. Anyone have any ideas?

    That code is already there. Any other ideas?

    ul.post-categories {
    font-size: 100%
    }
    :)

    read again Manzabar's post :)
    It says: Try adding font size to this section...

    It did say to add a font thing, didn't it? Shnark. Well, it worked. Next CSS question - the text looks a bit squished in the posts, but I hunted around for a while for something that looked like text spacing or kerning, but nothing I tried worked. It's in the <div id="storycontent">...</div> section, but putting in a "letter-spacing: 3em" line in the CSS didn't work. I jacked it up to 15em, thinking it would be one letter per line, but nothing happened. Anyone know how to "unscrunch" the text?

    Also, anyone know why it looks fine in Firefox but is completely jacked up in IE?

    Please define "jacked up" - only you know what you want it to look like.

    The jacked up part is that the right column appears below the content in IE while it's lined up correctly in Firefox. Sounds like a CSS problem, I thought.
    As for the validating, I'm not quite sure what all that stuff means. I'm not a hard-core html programmer.
    I'll reply later on my issues with the validator. The letter spacing thing is now fixed. Thanks for the tip.

    All right. Here's the first thing I'm getting hung up on. Post ID 34, titled "Watch Yourselves." The validator is saying that my

      ...
    tag is invalid. I ran compiled that post in WP's own editor, making sure that it converted everything to XHTML-compatible tags in the options. Yet, the validator's giving me fits. Any ideas?
