    In Firefox, everything is fine. In IE 7, the sidebar fonts are way too big! and the fonts from the posts are increasing in font size. However, when I click on a particular post, the fonts are back to normal. Strange. Any ideas on fixing this problem? Thanks!

    Here’s a screenshot of what the main page looks like in IE 7

    If you scroll down, do some posts show an unusual font size as well?

    You have open < h3 > tags. It looks like you are using them for the “continue reading” at the end of your posts, and since it is on the “more” tag, the ending tag ends up not being on the front page.

    ‘thesacredpath’, you are so right! I went into my posts and saw that I had
    <h3><!–more–>blah</h3>
    instead of
    <!–more–><h3>blah</h3>

    Thanks for the help!

    How do you write and publish your posts? No copy-paste from word, I hope?

    Hi boblets,

    JP from Diablogue here for Gerry….yes, I think you hit the nail on the head. :) I just deleted the Word-pasted post in question and all went back to normal.

    Thanks much!

    JP, on the extended tool bar (the bottom one in the visual editor) there is a white square icon with a “W” on it, which is a “paste from word” icon. Click on that icon and then paste the text from Word into the window that appears and then click “insert” and it should take care of most of the strange code Word uses that causes the issues.
