CSS: changing fonts and customizing the headers (3 posts)

    I couldn't find a theme I like, so I guess I'm on to altering CSS, a little scary, but I have put together some websites in the past, and we used to post our news releases using code.

    I have the latest version of WordPress. How hard is it to change the fonts and customize the header with CSS? And where do I begin?

    Many thanks!

    begin with installing firefox, the web develper add-on and the firebug.

    and then get used to work with them.

    most css is formatted in style.css of the theme.
    and make it a habbit to look up online tutorials with anything you are not sure abeout - for instance http://www.w3schools.com/

    and refresh the browser after changes to css, as the browser cache often holds on to 'old' stuff: press CTRL and F5 at the same time, or use the reload button.

    at last, but certainly not least, there is this unread documentation, called the codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page -
    intimidating, maybe, but i suggest that you do the same as with css and html, if in doubt, search and read.

    and the default theme as a source of 'how did they do it' - as is any other (free) theme.
    if you like a feature of a theme, just download it, take it apart, and learn from it.
