Can't change font size

I spent all day yesterday trying different things.

Something has happened so I can't change font size.

I have a table and in the first cell I have only text.

I tried using the cell's Style to change the font size.
I tried using the cell's attribute to change the font size.
I tried adding a paragraph element and doing the above to it.
Removed all font sizes from Body, Table...
Used IE and Localhost to view.
I change the text and the new text shows so I know I'm seeing the latest
update.

Do you have any idea what could possible cause this?

Thanks

I was just too timid and didn't see the change from 12 to 18 pt.

I just tried 8 and 28 pt. So there is really no problem here.

While looking for something that controlled font size I noticed that I have
in my .css file:

a

{

font-size: 12pt !important;

text-decoration: none;

color: green !important;

background-color: maroon !important;

}

I also have entries for a.hover a.link ...

What does the plain "a" shown above do. I find no effect.

Thanks

The a means that the style should be applied to all <atags (anchor tags).
Add a link to your page and you will see the effect.

I don't see the effect. I think the a.hover a.link ... covers it.
I never see green text (as the "a" entry specifies)
Maybe if I didn't have the other the effect would show.
I'll try that.

Thanks

That's what happens. Without the other definitions, a.hover a.link ...,
the plain "a" definition is used for hover, link...

They all so up as green.

But combined with the a.hover a.link ... definitions, the plain "a" has
no effect

I'm trying my first table-less site, and I've bumped my head up against a wall. I can't change the font size within a div. Real quick, my style sheet has: ------------------------------------- body { font: 8pt "face" } #nav {float: left; width: 144px; } #test { font: 12pt; font-weight: bold } -------------------------------------

Hi all, Hope someone is able to help. I notice when I design a basic HTML page, it is affected if a WinXP user has Large Fonts set in their Control Panel. However some pages, e.g. www.bbc.co.uk/news are unaffected by this I think. They are definitely not affected by changing the font size within the browser. Because I want to add tables, which will word-wrap incorrectly if the font size is changed, how can I disable allowing the...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
