    I don't see anything in my sidebar.php file about font sizes, are there other places to look? What exactly am I lookin for?

    Everything style related is defined in the stylesheet of your active theme.

    I read that, and I figured out how to change the headers like "featured t-shirt sites" and stuff, but I cannot find where the actual link font sizes are set. :(

    Look for the styles listed in the style sheet under NAVIGATION. :-)

    You can add something like font-size: 90% to any of div .nav, div .nav li, or div .nav li a, depending on what you want to accomplish. You could use ems instead, if you like.

    If you only want to change the size of the h2 in your sidebar, you could define font-size like so:

    div .nav h2 {font-size: 90%;}

    I don't want the headers smaller, I just want the actual links smaller. What is the best way to just change those?

    I tried adding this .nav { text-align: left; color: #7D8085; padding: 20px 0 0 0px; width: 200px; font-size: 80%;}

    but all it did was make the text inside the lines smaller. So for example, where my banners start on the sidebar, lines up with the superficial tee whether I set it to 50% or 100%. Does this make sense?

    EDIT: I think I fixed it with this line "Padding 5px" to "0px"
