Could you link to your homepage that way it will be a lot easier to look through you code and help you.
Have you tried to create a new style in the stylesheet.
I had the same problem with my date as well. But I sorted it out by creating a new style in the stylesheet. Have a look here: Update: New date format.
The site is http://www.auctionrealestatecompany.com. I did not create a new style, I’ve never done that before. I was able to make it italic (removed that) with regular html… why can’t I change the font? It’s buggin’ me!
