    In the admin area there should be drop down menus to allow the user to choose different fonts, different font sizes and also possibly font colours for their posts.
    We have various formatting options such as alignment but no simple font control.

    --Font face? Theme's stylesheet.

    Not very useful for a user who might have no knowlege or experience of css to have to hack a css file is it?

    Most wysiwyg editors have the ability to allow selection of various "web standard" fonts, even forum software wysiwyg's - so why is the WP one so limiting?

    Font face from the stylesheet, yeah. But font size should be possible to be changed easily in the editor. I have users who have no knowledge at all about html or css - or not even any access to css- or stylesheet files. The basic styles come from stylesheet, yes, but sometimes you need smaller/bigger/more coloured words inside your one post. And it's a pain to start writing the tags in the code window! (yeah. and my users don't even know how to do that!)

    So far the wysiwyg editor plugins I've tested haven't worked well at all. And even Blogger has this feeture - is it so impossible for WordPress then?

    Hmm. No offense, but why not make the interface yourself and make it available to WP? I have very discouraging experiences from my clients having too much "font freedom". On the other hand, it pays to fix it ;)

  7. You are absolutely right.For changing the fonts the only option left is using H1,H2,H3... tags which is not the right thing to do.

    The TinyMCE Advanced plugin appears to offer both font-size and foreground/background color control (and much more).

    There are also 185 TinyMCE-related plugins that might offer some of what you're looking for.

    The visual editor does not offer this, and instead offers a dropdown of the styles that themes are meant to include in their stylesheet. This produces better code.
