    I GUESS THE QUESTION FOR THE ABOVE TOPIC SHOULD BE, HOW DO I CHANGE THE FONT ON THE HEADER FOR ANY THEME.

    FOR EXAMPLE. I'D LIKE THE HEADER OF MY SITE TO HAVE A DIFF FONT.

    HOW CAN I DO IT??

    Open the style sheet (style.css) for the theme you are using, locate the font properties for the header, and change them to whatever you want.

    here's the link to my blog (Tandil theme), you can see the results:

    I also updated the Header picture in my /images folder. If you want help with that, please contact me thru my blog.

    This change I made in the STYLE.CSS file. First I changed the font itself, I used the Mac app Kompozer to get the font-family. I also changed the font size:

    #header h1 a{
    font-family: Arno Pro Bold Italic; (I took out all the other styles that were listed)
    font-weight: 100;
    color: #e7dede;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-size: 52px; (the default was 46px)
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    }

    #header h2{
    font-family: Myriad, "Myriad Pro", Arial, Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif;
    padding: 1px 0 1px 10px;
    font-weight:110;
    color: #e7dede;
    font-size: 24px; (default was 16px)
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    }

    This next change I made in the HEADER.PHP file
    I put a space (the "br" in <> is the code for a space) between my title and subtitle:

    br
    <h1>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    br
    <h2><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></h2>

    Enjoy!

    -unfortunately, I don't have that font on my computer...I bet many people don't, and since you removed the other fonts from the list....you now are not controlling the display of your header font in any way for me.

    --that's why multiple fonts are usually listed, from the one you most want displayed, to least, but at least by giving a list, you have some control.
