I am using Standard theme, and I have placed the widget - but as you can see at the link below (it is lower on the page until I can get it fixed), it is using the theme's default font settings for style, color, size and spacing - and it is both chunky and very hard to read.
I have a couple of questions regarding the ability to change these elements:
1) How do I change the font type, size, and color?
2) How do I fine tune the spacing, so that it doesn't look so clunky and take up too much room?
3) How do I adjust the content displayed, so that it provides the date as a range (October 17-20, 2011)?
I am assuming that I can do all of this through my custom.css file, but I do not know how to add lines that specifically address the Upcoming Events section only.
Thank you for your help!
