    Okay, I'm taking the big step. I've installed this Theme called Aesthetic. I'd like to change some of the elements. First, I'd like to have the individual post headlines to use the same font size & color as the WP 1.5 default. I'd also like to change the font size & color to the default as well.

    Of course I'm not sure where do make this change or what to do. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Sounds like you need a lesson in css. We can give you a fish, or teach you how to spend and entire day in a boat with beer. Start learning CSS: http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/css/quick-tutorial.html

    You will need to identify the selector surrounding the text and the properties for that text. Once you have identified it, find the corresponding selector in the style.css file contained with the Aesthetic directory, and change the properties. Make sure to backup your styles.css file in case you make a change you don't like. (You can also look in the style.css in the default directory for the selectors and properties you like and copy them into the Aesthetic/style.css file.

    We could give you the selectors and properties, but then it won't be YOUR blog.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate your help. I know you hate hearing this but I'd be happy just to have a nice fish dinner. :-) I'd love to get my blog theme modified and be done with it. There is so much on my plate already that adding CSS styling, as easy as it may be to you, is just one more hassle.

    I looked through some of the documentation and then the CSS style sheet and I couldn't even find the place in the body copy that the color change is made. There's lots of code in the Aesthetic stylesheet.

    Anyway, thanks for all your great help.
