Changing the body font size

    I’ve upgraded my account so that I can make the font of my body text bigger (readers complain). I’m using the Thirteen theme, which has the following code in the style sheet:

    body {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    background: #4E5706 url(images/bg.gif);
    color: #000;
    font-size: x-small;
    font-family: “Lucida Sans Unicode”, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;
    text-align: center;
    voice-family: “\”}\””;
    voice-family: inherit;
    font-size: small;
    html>body {
    font-size: small;

    I copied this, and then changed each font-size designation so that it was “medium” instead of small (or x-small) and pasted it in the CSS editor, so it looks like this:

    body {
    background:#4E5706 url(‘images/bg.gif’);
    font-family:”Lucida Sans Unicode”, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;

    html>body {

    But it hasn’t changed the size of the font in my entries; it’s still coming out small.




    OT: Are your readers not aware that they can use their browsers to increase the font size on any web page they read? On windows they simply hold down the ctrl key and simultaneously click the plus sign + key to increase font size. As I’m visually challenged I do this frequently. HTH :)


    help me too problem with small fonts and also is the addition “What did you just say?” special to one kind of format or can anyone use it with any kind of blog theme?
    I’d also like to remove all the category lists because it is ridiculously long…can i do that for free?

    Thanks for your time.



    This is a css customization forum thread for bloggers with blogs hosted by only. The blog linked to your username is not a blog.

    (1) Do you have a blog and are your questions above in reference to it. If so, please post the url for your blog.
    (2) If you do have a blog and your questions are about it then – Do you have css customization experience and have you purchased the css upgrade?

    1. For CSS qs we need a uri to the blog in question. That way we can read the CSS.

    2. During the copy manouver outlined above you have introduced a bad error. The following has been deleted:

    voice-family: "\"}\"";

    This is an integral part of Tantek Çelik’s famous voice hack and it’s absence will render the blog as unstable in IE browsers.
