Changing text color of posts (6 posts)

    Somehow, the text color of all my posts has changed. It happened out of the blue, so I'm mystified. It should be black, but it is now green.

    This is where I thought I would find it:

    body {
    background: #777 url(images/back.gif) fixed;
    color: #000;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
    }

    However, there is no green there that I can see. I cannot see anyplace else in the stylesheet where the body is defined.

    I'd really, really appreciate some help here!

    Thank you.

    Validate, remove ALL the inline style (like open font tags which are never closed...) and you should be fine.

    Thank you, Moshu. Sorry to be a pain, but could you please elaborate? I'm new at this.

    Thank you again.

    If you are new - NEVER use any kind of inline style; the kind of crap you put in your left sidebar:
    <font COLOR.... etc. etc.
    Especially do NOT use it if you forget to close it with a </font>. Not closing it means the colour will be applied to EVERYTHING that comes after... including your posts.
    So, again, if you proclaim yourself "new at this" - don't touch the code or learn how to do it. It is that simple.

    Yes, I see where the problem is--in my RSS widget. I'll get it fixed.

    Thank you for the "support," for the kind words and the encouragement.
