    I think you can see my problem. The text is just way too big and I cannot figure out why.

    I'm assuming you mean your headers: Pages, Archives, Categories...

    Original CSS:

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

    If you change:

    #sidebar h2 {
    font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Sans-Serif;
    font-size: 1em;
    }

    Your headings in your sidebar will reduce

    Better yet: stop using the wysiwyg editor and you'll be a happy camper:)

    I bet you were copying text into the wysiwyg and messed around with font tags until you left something open...
    (just try to validate it and you'll see)

    I'm using FF to view your site and the first post has a readable text size but the font size in sidebar and the rest of the posts is very very small. Too small, if you ask me.

    Tried to validate it, but what the validator finds is fine (There is nothing wrong with what it is finding).
    Changing the CSS did nothing.

    Josalmon, You are right. I don't know why its like that.

    The funny thing is, I didn't copy and paste that post. I had copied another post (That is under drafts and not up there) from Word, but that particular one was not copied.

    Changing the CSS via FF web developer tools DID CHANGE your sidebar headings. But that was my end, on my computer.

    And Moshu is right; you need to fix your HTML. I mentioned in another post of yours that you have duplicate embedded styles in your post.

    If you check your page under view source you'll see about 48 validation errors. This also could be contributing to your font problems.

    Also, c/p from a word document isn't healthy for your wordpress blog. Word outputs additional symbols and cruft which will irritate your posts...

    I labored through the HTML, seemed to fix the problem.
    I changed the CSS, but only left it up for a second (after seeing it didn't change anything), so my guess is you just imagined the change :)

    Thanks for the input, didn't know it could do that much damage... at least I know for the future.
