    Smile change font sizes in CSS

    Hello, I'm not very knowledable of CSS and don't want to make any mistakes in the code. I want to change the h1,h2,h3 font sizes for my posts & pages, where do I need to go to to make this change under 'main structure' or 'posts'? Also I don't know what to change or what to css code to write to make this change, can you instruct me. I have copied the original code that I have. look forward to your help. thanks so much, Karen:

    (below is a snipet of original code presented in style.css)


    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { margin:0px 0px 5px; }
    h1 { font-size:100%;}
    h2 { font-size:16pt;font-family: arial,helvetica,san-serif;}
    p { margin:0px 0px 0px 0px; padding:5px 15px 5px 0px;color: #161618}


    .post h1, .post h2, .post h3 { margin:0px 0px 5px 0px; font-size:16pt;font-family: arial,helvetica,san-serif;}
    .post h4, .post h5, .post h6 { margin:3px 0px 0px 0px}

    Might I ask why you're trying to change them?

    You say you're a Newbie with CSS, does that also mean you're a newbie to blogging?

    The reason we don't make it easy for users to change fonts is because our goal is to make our customer's money.

    Too many newbies get caught up in designing a blog with fonts and styles they like and they don't take their readers into consideration.

    If you want your blog to be readable and profitable, you should not touch the fonts. Your visitors will appreciate it.

    There's a reason why out of 5,000 customers I've only had 5-6 people ask how to change the fonts.

    That being said the best way to learn CSS is to experiment. Always make sure you have a backup of your style.css file first.

    Then using the code you submitted change the font-size.

    Just change 16pt to 14pt and save.

    There are also 1000's of CSS tutorials online that can assist you in learning more about CSS..

    But honestly 99% of our customers never touch the css, nor should they.

    OK, thank you for your prompt response. I'm also a newbie blogging, so I will take your word for it.

    The main reason is that I wanted to change the h2 tag to be smaller than 16 point (maybe 14 or 12 point), rather than 16 point (like the h1 tag). I just wanted to use the h2 tag for more SEO value, but I don't want the size to be competing with the same h1 size of 16 point. thank you, karen
