    Hello, I've tried doing as this post (http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/) said, but it won't go through. It accepts color change, but not font size (what I need). What can I do?

    I don't have CSS though. The link says I can do it through the text editor..

  4. You cannot use the CSS editor unless you purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ and then you will be able to do the required CSS editing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/

  5. To clarify note these are the 3 ways to change fonts on wordpress.com blogs.
    (1) Changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page by coding into the HTML (Text) editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/

    (2) Changing font colors in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page using the #4 icon (Select text color – change the text color) in Row 2 the Visual editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2

    (3) Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    Note: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. In the majority of themes font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, menu, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings and text, comments, and links cannot be done without CSS editing.

    To do the (1) I have to have CSS?

  7. No you don't need the custom design upgrade for (1).

  8. We can't help you with any coding failures you are having without being able to view the code your are using. You need to post that code here between backticks. The backtick ` not to be confused with the single quote mark ' is located to the left of the number 1 key in lower case under the tilde ~ on your keyboard.

    I was trying to use <span style=”font-size:x-small;”> and then </span>

    <span style=”font-size:x-small;”>

  11. Your example code looks like it should work. It's possible there is more specific CSS from the theme overriding the rule you're trying to add. Please provide a link to an example from your site where you have added that code.
