    You have this in your styleshett:
    p {
    line-height: 1.25em;
    font-size: 2.2em;}

    Edit that 2.2 to something less, e.g. 1em or .8em ...

    .entry p {
    font-size:.8em;
    }

    put that at the BOTTOM of your css file.

    "For those who previously bookmarked http://www.cruzteng.com, you were directed to some ulu sembawang site over the week."
    that text is controlled by
    .entry p {
    font-size:.8em;
    }

    so if you want it larger, make the .8 into .9, or 1 or 1.2 etc

    1) you control this in the style sheet
    2) look at one of your pages in a browser
    3) view source and find the bit of code that surrounds the text content you want to control
    4) what is the tag? (eg. ? or <h2>?
    5) does the tag have something like <p class="post"> or <p class="entry">?

    6) if so, look in your style sheet for .entry or .post
    7) what is the font-size? em? px?
    8) modify to suit
    9) if you are editing via ftp, then upload the newly edited style sheet. If from the admin screens (templates), save the changes
    10) view site and refresh the page. did it change?

    It is NOT a good idea to just add more rules at the bottom of the page. Between cascade, inheritance and specificity, you could get wildly varied results, particularly if

    a) the font size is set in em lengths and
    b) the xhtml is writing <br/> instead of

    HTH

    It seems you have this problem with every new theme you are installing on your blog.
    There might be some wierd setup in your browser that you always see small fonts.

    On the other hand: you either learn some basic CSS if you want to mess around with the CSS files... or stick to one theme that is working for you.
