Like the < strong > for bold and all that. If it’s even possible…. just let me know when you can. Thank you December 5, 2006 at 10:18 am #42321 misslionheartMember I’ve been wondering the same. I sometimes write a post on e-mail in colour, then C&P to my site… December 5, 2006 at 11:28 am #42322 sulzMember < FONT FACE=”verdana” SIZE=”6″ COLOR=”green” >Little Green Men < /font > Cross-browser friendly fonts: Arial, Arial Black, Comic Sans, Courier New, Georgia, Times New Roman, Trebuchet, Webdings. Cross-browser friendly colors: aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow. (Want more colors? Use a HEX code.) i got this from the friendster html tips. heh. take not however certain themes strip size and font tags in their sidebar like regulus. so if it doesn’t work you know why. oh, don’t forget to close the spaces between the < and > when using in the sidebar or else it won’t work.

It’s a trial and error situation as far as knowing how any individual theme will behave. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/06/12/can-i-change-my-font-font-size/ Code chart for html: http://www.web-source.net/html_codes_chart.htm Author Posts The topic ‘Sidebar text codes’ is closed to new replies.
