Text widget won't accept HTML

  1. Using pretty simple HTML to alter font size in right sidebar text widget but it wont change size...

    I've been here http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ and am using the standard html for font size(<font size="4">example</font>, any ideas?

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

  2. and I can't get the text to wrap, I've left alligned the image but it still appears above it.

  3. and I just tried `font size = "4"> in main post editor and that won't change size either....what am I doing wrong?

  4. now I tried <span style=”font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:x-large;”>text here</span>
    but that didn't change the font either...

  5. I will set up my test blog with the same theme and give this a whirl and report back to you.

  6. I switched to Twnety Ten and tried to place the following code into a text widget - primary widget area without success.

    <span style=”font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:x-large;”>You can change fonts using HTML</span>

    You will have to contact Staff as this is a a bug. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    The way we post code into forum threads is between backticks. The backtick ` not to be conduesed with the single quote mark id found on the same key as the tilde ~ which is the key to the left of the number 1 key.

    This code will be stripped out because it's wrong: it's got oblique instead of straight quotes.

    And please link to the blog in question: the one linked to your username has no text widgets.

    Thanks for the catch that I should have made.
