Font size

  1. I was trying to change the size of the font but it's not working. What am I doing wrong? Shouldn't this code work without CSS?<span style="font-size:xx-small;”>text</span>

    The blog I need help with is itspak.wordpress.com.

  2. I've tried different things but problem continues. Have anyone any suggestion please?

  3. In the HTML Editor, check to make sure that the first quote mark remains a quotation mark and doesn't revert to "

  4. Thanks Jennifer! You always help me in the codes problem. You're great!
    I was just typing this code<span style="font-size:xx-small;”>text</span> and when I saw the text in visual editor it was of normal size. Going back to the HTML editor it was like this
    <span style=" "font-size:xx-small;”="">text</span> And removing " manually did the trick.
    I was using this on a post having interesting stuff, Let’s draw them, Using symbols…
    Thanks again

  5. Oh the code messes when you change Editors time and again. I meant ''"" not ''

  6. It doesn't matter how I type the string wordpress strips everything out of the tag once I update the page.

    I copy and paste this exact string into the HTML editor:
    <span style="font-size:xx-small;”>text</span>

    click Update

    the HTML editor now displays:
    <span>text</span>

  7. That's because the closing quotation mark is curly instead of straight.
    And xx-small isn't the recommended way for specifying font sizes; the recommended way is percentages, for instance:
    <span style="font-size:60%;">text</span>
    Also, the span tag may or may not be right. What exactly are you trying to change?
