    I just spend a good hour playing with the style.css attempting to do this, but no luck.

    Damn this is frustrating.

    Can someone please tell me how to change ALL fonts to Verdana 10pt? I tried everything, nothing changes...

    thanks,

    yes, edit your theme's style.css file and change all font references to verdana and all size references to 10pt. Upload your edited file to the server and do a hard refresh with your browser to refresh the cached stylesheet.

    Just tried that, still does not change.

    What's going on here?

    I've put Verdana first and changed all to "10pt".
    Has not changed....

    Hi, I know that but where in the code?

    Here's a cut from the top of the style.css I have...

    ---
    /* Begin Typography & Colors */
    body {
    font-size: 10pt; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #d5d6d7;
    color: #333;
    text-align: center;
    }

    #page {
    background-color: white;
    border: 1px solid #959596;
    text-align: left;
    }

    #header {
    background-color: #73a0c5;
    }

    #content {
    font-size: 10pt;
    }

    .widecolumn .entry p {
    font-size: 10pt;
    }

    .narrowcolumn .entry, .widecolumn .entry {
    line-height: 10pt;
    }

    .widecolumn {
    line-height: 10pt;
    --------

    It shouldn't matter where you paste it. That line will override everything

    You could have any other css going on.
    A link will ease your pain fastest :)

    Well then, I'll hazard a guess that you're editing the wrong style.css file. Are you sure you're in the folder for the correct theme? The one that is currently active?

    Like podz said, a link would save everyone a lot of trouble and grief.

    OK,
    Here's the thing...

    The plain (edited) blog is here..

    http://www.extrememhz.com/wordpress/

    However,
    I'm inserting it here:

    http://www.extrememhz.com/index2.shtml

    Actually, if you noticed, both show different fonts even though it is the exact same file. ??

    Nothing changes...

    Thanks for the help...let me know what I need to do here.
    Would really like to use this over Greymatter.

    Yes, the right style.css is being edited...
    That's what's driving me nuts!

    BODY { color: $textcol; font-family: Arial,
    TD.dark {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    TD.light {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    TD.alt {color: $textcol; font-family: Arial
    .s{font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:x-small}
    all from:

    I'll note on the /wordpress/ site you don't even have any header information, and the stylesheet isn't linked whatsoever. It looks like you overedited the theme. Try adding <?php get_header() ?> to your index.php in your theme

    I had to edit it so that I can make the blog "plain" looking like that.
    Don't know how elese to do that besides removing the sidebar, large header, etc...

    How do I make WordPress look like just a plan text file then? I don't need all the colors on the theme.

    Just a white page with black text.

    The only way I can get it this way is to edit the header file...
