View Full Version : changing text size

06-18-2006, 12:24 AM
I currently have:

<style type="text/css">
body {
font-size: 10px ;
font-family: Arial;

In my <head>. I know how to change the font size, but for some reason it just won't change to 10. I've tried %'s and they won't work either.
I should mention that the font changes to arial.

Maybe I've just been working on this site for too long and I don't notice a stupid mistake.

Thanks for the help in advance..

10 what?

The fishmonger's is 5 from your house. Travelling at 3 miles per hour, how long will it take you to get there?

There's a space before the semicolon. I think that's valid, but try taking it out, maybe.

Is there other code on your page overriding this switch?

Unfortunately, there is no issue with the space before the semicolon..

I went through the code and didnt see anything that would affect the text in the table.... the only other font is "font:normal 12px Arial Black;" but that controls the "Any Link Drop Down Menu"...

I tried taking that same style and putting it under the body... but again, the only that changes is the font and not the size...

its weird

Link to your page, then.

There is clearly something controlling the size of your fonts.

It might be the anylink menu. Try removing it and see if that fixes the size issue. If not, it's something else. If so, then it just needs to be fixed a bit so it doesn't conflict with the rest of your page.
