    Hello again... thanks for the other tips in customising WordPress. I have another problem: how do you edit the font size of the main entries? I tried modifying #content in the wp-layout.css template, with the font-size set as 11pt but the entries still remain as 9pt! What should I do? here's the link to my site:

    Please help me again. Thanks very much...

    The css seems to be having very little effect on certain aspects of your page at all. You could try styling .storycontent but I am not hopeful.

    Look in your CSS file for the p selector. That is what sets the font by default in everything that is wrapped in a p tag.
    Now, if you want to leave most of the paragraphs the way the p selector is already set, then create a new selector thusly:
    #content p {
    -define your style-
    }
    That way, any p falling inside of the content div will be styled accordingly.

    Ah wait. Font sizes need to be in px not pt. HTH.

    Oh... but may I ask, too, if .storycontent is also in the wp-layout.css file? I keep on searching for it to no avail. And thanks for the tip on the font-size in px instead of in pt. Still I am baffled as to why tis so (?.?)
    Thanks! I hope you could answer my question for the second time...

    If .storycontent is not in your css, just add it.
    Text is much better in px because that will appear better for your visitors. Pt size, as far I can remember, can be different between machines, and scales very badly. Px is better in this respect.

    Hello again... I added .storycontent with a font-size of 15px. But still the body of my news is still in the same font size! What must be done? Help again. I'll gladly appreciate it...
