font-free

  • The rest of my website has no <font> tags at all, so that the reader’s default font settings (presumably chosen for legibility) control. (http://ogre.nu/wp/index.php?p=498) I love WordPress’s ease of use – so far – but I hate the look. How can I undo whatever CSS is doing to the body text? Why can’t I find where “class storycontent” is defined?

  • Look for the p { font... in the CSS.
    Actually if you want your blog to become similar to the rest of your site – just delete everything related to font in your CSS file 🙂

    in ‘body’ is this:
    font-family: ‘Lucida Grande’, ‘Lucida Sans Unicode’, Verdana, sans-serif;
    Change that also, and any other font references.
    As for .storycontent, it is not defined – but you can define it to whatever you wish.

    Ah, the bastard is in p, li, .feedback {
    font: 90%/175% 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Verdana, sans-serif;
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    }

    I removed the letter-spacing, for a big improvement. What’s the “175%” about?

    But now my line-spacing is inconsistent…..

    the 175% is the line-spacing.

    Got it. Much better now.
    Now, can I disable the flaky character-substitution?

    What do you mean ?

    For example, replacing “-” with “-” — except when the quotation ends with a digit, or is in parentheses … I’d rather have no substitution at all, particularly since the substitute characters look funny in my preferred font.
    Also, the HTML-standard character ½ appears not as a fraction but as the HTML code!
