    Its a long story but i need to change all of the text on my website from the dreamweaver default font into Verdana size 2.

    But i do not wish to change any H1 H2 H3 H4 H5 headings.

    Is there a way of doing this in dreamweaver?

    Or does anyone know of another application will will enable me to do this?

    I am using dreamweaver 4

    If all of your content is wrapped in <font> tags do this:

    1. Click on the Edit menu, then "Find and Replace"

    2. Choose "Source Code" and "All files in site".

    3. Replace your <font face=""> tags with <font face="verdana" size="2">.

    This should change all of the fonts on your site. Of course the easier way to do this would be to wipe all of the font tags completely and use a stylesheet, which would eliminate the need to do this ever again.

    Well i have a couple problems doing this.

    1) I really don't know much about css, its not something i have ever spent time learning

    2) Its actually a css which is causing the problem.

    If you look at www.hostcompanies.com/homepage.htm you will see that i have a cool menu system on the left. That system came with its own css.
    Problem was when i added the menu system it changed all the text on the page to the css of the menu system. Hence all my text is now small.

    I like the css of the menu system but i dont want it on the rest of my text.

    Could i add a css to the rest of the page without it changing the menu system css?

    Do you know the best way of doing this?

    I would look over the CSS that the menu is using and decide the best way to change it so that only your menu uses those definitions. I would recommend changing all the CSS elements for the menu to be class="menu" and then redefining regular elements for the rest of your page. Will take a little bit of work, but will pay off in the end.

    Check here for some good (short) tutorials on the basics of CSS formatting.
    $slider = 'n00b';
