And add your font size and font style as follows

<p class='description' style='font-family: verdana; font-size: 13px;'><span><data:description/></span></p>

<p class='description' style='font-family: verdana;'><span><data:description/></span></p>

  1. Thank you so much. It worked!

  2. Excellent - this really helped. I put your code in the html widget with my page links (instead of using the Pages widget) which has made it more customisable.

    For some reason the Pages widget shows as a vertical bar (instead of horizontal) in IE, whereas it shows as a horizontal under the header when viewed in Firefox. Very odd... Hence, I've done my own links for my pages.

    Thanks for this brilliant tweak.

  3. Thanks, very helpful! I added position specs to move it just under my Title; looks pro.

  4. Thankyou for sharing your knowledge! You really helped me. Be blessed!

  5. Unable to find the term "<p class ..." anywhere.

  9. Does this not work for the Sue Ellen Francisco font?

  10. I couldn't find the code you mentioned above but kept working with it and figured it out. I added that code (with the font I wanted) to some other CSS I was adding to change the font size and it worked! I am so happy - and I know NOTHING about any of this stuff. Well, I guess now I do! Thank you!
