    Hi All,

    I've searched and tried all the solutions I found, but just can't work out what i need to add to the css to change the case of the h2, h3 to lowercase, so i can use lowercase headings and standout quotes in my body copy. website deadline fast approaching! can anyone help?

    here's the site, you'll see the quote on the homepage is in caps, I want it sentence case.

    thanks in advance wizards.

    That particular CSS is on line 938 -- the font-variant and lowercase:

    #main .entry-content h3 {
        font-variant: small-caps;
        letter-spacing: 0.25em;
        text-transform: lowercase;
    }

    You should be able to get normal text by removing both of those lines, or there may be an option in your theme to change it.

    Thanks for a swift reply!

    In this theme there's no option to change the style of the headers, but there is a custom css box - don't want to edit the parent.

    So, what should i paste in there to override the caps for h2 h3 in the body, do you think?

    Try:

    #main .entry-content h3 {
        font-variant: none;
        text-transform: none;
    }

    If you need to do h4 too, duplicate the above and change the h3 to h4.

    Thanks for this, doesn't seem to do anything. I'm pasting all the custom css below; can you see anything conflicting with it?

    Sorry i'm just beginning to learn this.

    For the font-variant try using "normal" instead of "none".
