    Usually it's much easier to use a theme that has option frameworks, so you can change the settings from Admin Panel, without touching the CSS files.

    Might wanna try these theme frameworks out:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/suffusion
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/pagelines
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/responsive

    Just go to WordPress Admin Panel > Appreance > Themes > Install Themes
    to search these themes.

    Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Thank you. I'd much prefer to set things from an Admin Panel. Thank you! I've opened up each of the links that you sent. They're good. I liked suffusion best. There must be other themes that allow me to circumvent CSS, no? How do I find that out? Thank you.

    These 3 are probably the most popular and the easiest. Or else you'll have to purchase premium paid ones:

    I understand. Thank you. Does WordPress use Dreamweaver? I'm looking for very specific help with CSS, hoping that the different aspects of CSS are cataloged like a table of contents either in Lynda.com, YouTube, or even here in WordPress.

    Dreamweaver is just an editor. You don't need it. Dreamweaver is nice for HTML files, but don't think it's good for PHP, Javascript, CSS files. Better to use professional editors like:

    - Notepad++ (Windows)
    - Sublime Text (Windows, Mac, Linux)
    - UltraEdit (Win, Linux)
    - TextMate (Mac)
    etc.

    There are others that require more learning curve:

    - Vim (Windows, Mac, Linux) this one is my favorite
    - Emacs (Windows, Mac, Linux)
    and so on.

    But I'm just trying to make a few changes to the font on my website--I want to change the style and the size throughout the site and then change the color of the font in the Widgets. Where do I go to get just these tasks completed today? Your knowledge runs laps around what I know and what I need right now; okay, you run counties and townships around what I know . . . .

    This is probably what you are looking for

    for generic font, you have to look for

    body {
     ... code goes here ...
    }

    and change the font-size code.

    Okay. A little lost. So I need to find "Style.CSS"? And I find that not in my wordpress dashboard but in my control panel on Firefox?

    You can edit file from WordPress:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_Files

    but you probably want to first install the Advanced Text Editor to make editing easy with line numbers, syntax hightlighting, etc.

    Yes. Thank you. I want to make it easy. As easy as possible. I don't have the hours to sort things out. Thanks. So install Advanced Text Editor.

    There is a section in CSS that reads "Global." Under that is an option to revise the font. Is that the section of the font that I want to change if I want to change the ENTIRE website's font?
