    Not sure what you mean exactly. But in the CSS file you can modify the text-size of certain elements to your liking. I dont know if you can do this within the editor, maybe someone can shed some light on this for you.

    Yes, and like Louis said, you can modify the CSS to change the text size. Look in the stylesheet.css file in the theme editor and change it to your liking.

    What theme are you using? Kubrick is the "DEFAULT" theme. It is also the theme that is listed next to your name and blog name, on the Manage part of the Admin Panel, as though it were your own theme. In the stylesheet for Kubrick, go down not too far, until you reach

    `/* Begin Typography & Colors */
    body {
    font-size: 72%; /* Resets 1em to 12px ? */
    font-family: "Times New Roman" 'Lucida Grande', Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #d5d6d7 /* soft gray */;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;
    }
    '

    The default Kubrick font-size is somewhat smaller than 72%. That's the change I've made. All you need to do is to make this amount larger. Then all the other "size" instructions change in sync with this basic size percentage. That is, sizes stated as 1.2 em or 4 em or .9 em are all proportional to the percentage you state in this first "body" style.

    It's "sister" not "brother," by the way.

    Again, if you are using Kubrick, the default theme, and enlarge the basic size, you may not like the appearance of the posts. The LOOP for posts uses "align=justify" which makes everything come out even along the right margin as well as the left margin. Use the "find" function on your browser, and search for "justify." Change it to "align=left" and you will have a ragged right margin, but there won't be the big holes between words.
