    I don’t seem to be able to alter the size of the printing and sometimes it appears rather small on the post but the normal size when I’m typing in or pasting?

    The blog I need help with is annarky1.wordpress.com.

    Hello! I’m french so, sorry for my poor english. Anyway, I’ll try… :)
    This might be due to the fact you copy-pasted from a site where the font was fixed. One thing you can do now, is copy your post from frontpage and paste it on your “bloc-notes” (?) Then go back into your article, erase everything and go back to your bloc-notes to copy the message again (he has now normally lost the font type he had before). Paste it again into your article, and that’s it! :)

    lilmaouz is right, you’ve probably been copypasting from other code-rich sources. All your paragraphs start with tags such as these:
    <p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="font-size:x-small;">
    The fastest way to get rid of all that in one go is highlight all the content in the visual editor, copy, switch to html, highlight all, paste. But this way you’ll have to redo the images and the links. So an alternative is to switch to html and delete those style tags one by one.

    In the future, when you copypaste from another source, use the Paste as Plain Text button, or paste into the html editor, not the visual.

    Hi,
    thanks for the info. I usually copy from openoffice, that’s where I gather what I’m working on then copy and paste straight onto the blog.

    Also you can “wash” html code pasting the text in a simple text editor, as Notepad (bloc-notes) or Gedit. As lilmalouz said.
    I do this: I copy the text from open Office and paste it in Gedit (or Notepad on Windows). Then I copy from Gedit and paste on the blog. This works in visual editor too, because the simple text editor cleans the html from Open Office.
    Bienvenue, lilmaouz (I’m trying english too).
