    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues.

    Create a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    I like the theme, and created the child theme. How can we put the font-size?

    You need to start by identifying the CSS that is being used in the parent's stylesheet when formatting the text that you want to change. This is the CSS that you need to over-ride in the child's theme. Using Firefox with the Firebug add-on should make this job easier.

    If you're not that familiar with CSS styling, you might want to try the Plugin: WP Google Fonts... you can choose any of the fonts from Google's font directory... take a look here: http://www.google.com/webfonts#HomePlace:home

    The cool thing about the WP Google Fonts plugin is that it allows you (without going into the CSS- unless you just want to) to select fonts for headers, paragraphs, lists, etc... however, if you want to just target one specific paragraph(s) within your WordPress™ site, you will have to use CSS.

    One word of aesthetic advice: just because you have access to displaying hundreds of fonts within you site, it is considered bad design to use more the 3 different fonts... IMHO, I think 2 is more than plenty.

    Good luck!
