    I want to create a Huffington-Post style "Top Headline" in a huge font, that then converts down to a regular post below when I write my next post. Does anyone know of a plugin, or code, that could help me do this?

    Thanks!

    css?

    Here is the markup from huffingtonpost.com for that headline:

    <h3 style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/21/us/politics/21attorneys.html?pagewanted=2&amp;hp"></a><a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20070320/fired-prosecutors"> Bush: I Will Oppose Any Attempt To Subpoena WH Officials...</a> <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/20/washington/20cnd-attorney.html?pagewanted=1&amp;hp">Leahy: Committee To Vote On Subpoenas</a></h3>

    Now just download the css file from huffingtonpost.com and add it to your website...

    wow! way to help someone to learn? not. I certainly hope you dont make that habit, suggesting that ppl just rip CSS off of sites ...

    Thats terrible advice, and NOT web friendly, btw, imo, if you didnt catch on.

    What's wrong with looking at someone's CSS and using it to tweak your own site? If I like how somebody has rounded the corners of their tables, then I check their CSS and see how they did it. Looking at how someone wrote their pages is EXACTLY a great way to learn.

    When I studied art in college we were taught to look at masterpieces and try painting them ourselves to see the technique used by the masters. I think the exact same thing applies for learning things on the Web--looking at how someone changes a div or a table is important to learn.

    Have you not looked at CSS on people's websites and checked how they did something and then used it to create something for yourself?

    I am with WP China on this. More broadly this forum is inundated with folk saying how do they do that? They dont seem to have a clue that you can just open up the site and have a look.

    But I agree with whooami that maybe I mis-phrased my original response and was a bit too flippant. I meant to upload only that one tag and not the entire css file and template. If the entire css is uploaded, then the developer is creating a clone website, and nobody likes that ;)

    Yes, just to be clear :)

    Suggesting that someone look at another person's CSS to learn how they accomplished something is a wonderful suggestion.

    Suggesting that someone copy another's source code, download another's CSS, and upload that CSS to their own site is NOT a wonderful suggestion, and doesnt teach anything except how to steal.

    Your first reply sounded more like the second than the first to me.

    Just an opinion, and just mine.

    doesn't help the original poster.
    he wants to have the latest post headline huge, and the following posts smaller.
    i.e. looking for a way to display newest post and older stuff differently.

    like http://ifelse.co.uk has done.
