Unwanted gray lines in Suburbia Theme

    I’m trying to write text on a static page in the Suburbia Theme using Headline 4 text. Each line break creates an unwanted gray line between sections of text. I’ve tried using shift/return which works, but then the next section of text reverts back to Paragraph size.

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



    “I’m trying to write text […] using Headline 4”.
    Well, you shouldn’t. Headings have a meaning for search engines and screen readers, so you should only use them for actual titles of sections and subsections, not just to change the appearance of some text. If you wish to simulate the exact look of the Suburbia h4 minus the grey border, switch the editor to Text (=code) and write each paragraph this way:
    <p style="font-family:Helvetica Neue,Helvetica;font-weight:bold;color:#000;">TEXT HERE</p>


    Thank you – I’ll try it. The regular text looks too small to me. Is there any way to make it larger?




    You’re welcome.
    The one way to change the regular text is buy the Custom Design upgrade. This will allow you to change it once for all.
    The other way is to use coding in the Text (=code) editor. But this has to be done on a post by post basis. To change the font size of a complete post you’d add this at the very beginning:
    <div style="font-size:100%;">
    and this at the very end:

    100% is default size: change the number to increase it.

    Bu this whole idea is a bit questionable, since the perceived font size depends on screen resolution. You obviously have a high resolution screen (as I do). What looks small to you (and me) will look ok to a visitor with a lower resolution screen, and what will look ok to you if you increase the font size may look too large to said visitor…
