    I'm using the default theme and hate the large font in the sidebar, but in the About us category font is smaller and more attractice. How can I get a smaller font for the sidebar on the index page?

    Well, I'd start with fixing these 8 validation errors first. ;)

    Thanks. BUT, I'm not XHTML literate. How can I fix them? How did they get there?

    Now, with this link version of the one above I gave, click on the Line 48 number, that's made a link.. it will take you right to the location of where the error is at, in your blog post's or theme's code.. then, that way.. you'll know where and what's the culprits.. ;)

    OK, they are all related to the use of "more" to split posts.

    How does that affect font size in the sidebar?

    Please, look at the error numbers there again, there is many times the font size is set to <font size="3"> That *might* be one of the reasons things are screwy..

    Numbers, 2,4,6, 8.. please.. just try fixing those errors, in your blog posts. Edit those posts, via Manage => Posts.. click the edit option beside the post that is having the errors for..

    My guess, it's the post that contains this part in the article. "That struck me as odd since pitching won/lost records are arguably the least meaningful statistic in all of statistic-happy baseball."

    In eveery case, Spencer, I had split the posts and inserted blank lines afterward. It is the post publish blank lines that seem to be the problem so I removed them. Will check the font sizes. Thanks

    Oh ok, well.. my guess would be this CSS code to edit then too?

    #sidebar h2 {
    font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Sans-Serif;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    }

    You're links on the sidebar, appear to be screwy because something was done within a post or something perhaps.. Do you usually post from a WordProcessor, right into your blog's Write Post window? If so, that's a big NO NO.. Post into NotePad or NotePad2 first.. then into the Write Post window..

    Yep, I write in a word processor and copy into the write window. Didn't know that was a no-no. Can stop doing it in the future but how do I correct the past damage?

    I am having a similar problem (although at least partly it must be a result of using word-processor - which I did not knew was a No-NO).

    The sidebar font on the main page is too big http://global-themes.com/

    while on the other pages it looks oK e.g. here http://global-themes.com/the-fine-print/

    Any help/hints/suggestions appreciated.

    I am not an html or script expert - thanks a lot.

    Well, fixing those 593 Validation Errors would always help. ;)

    Spencer, thanks. I know I am being a bit lazy here...Is there a quick fix (dumb question?)...or do you have any other suggestions?
    If I change the theme and revert back, will the errors still remain?

    Thanks for your patience,

    Well, atleast you got it down to 93 errors now. ;) Umm, really there is ONLY ONE easy way to keep this from happening, and that's to: STOP USING WORD PROCESSORS to copy/paste articles from, into the Write Post windows! Also, turn off the dang crappy RTE too.

    From those 93 errors, it appears you'll have to edit your posts individually and clean out the CRAP CODES that the Word Processor added in there.. =/
