    I finally got the story content (ie the text of the posts) in the font i want it, but now it looks awfully squished together on my browser. i've tried putting
    in a font-spacing specification in the body style tag and in the .storycontent
    tag but only the titles to the posts and the "comments" line are getting spaced out. what else can i try?
    here is my site: http://www.castelcampo.com/ollie

    uuh, jesus. In Firefox the storycontent-text has a BIG spacing already. Its quite unreadable. What browser do you use?

    btw. letter-spacing: ...; is the property for that.

    You should freally be using a default system font for your body text to ensure other users see what you want. Something like Georgia may be OK if you definitely want a serif. I've just had a look and the letter spacing looks huge on my safari browser! Try adding letter-spacing 1px (or whatever) to your paragraph tags in your style sheet

    p {font-family: georgia, "times new roman", serif; letter-spacing: 1px;}

    or

    .storycontent p {font-family: georgia, "times new roman", serif; letter-spacing: 1px;}

    It *is* huge:

    .storycontent p {
    font: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    letter-spacing: 10px;
    }
