[css-d] adjusting Font-Families

Sent by Jason A. Ogle on 28 January 2002 13:01

Hi all,

I too am very happy to be on this list, and to see so many familiar
"From" names in my In-Box! I am amongst the many users who are quite new
to CSS layout techniques, but eager to learn and grow. I know I'm in the
right place! Thanks again Eric for this list.

I am trying to create a CSS box but have the font attributes change
within that box overriding the font attributes already set up in my
global stylesheet for the p, and td tags?


Here's an idea of what I'm trying to do. I just want the font attributes
to change in this box.

	width: auto;
	padding: 10px;
	border: 1px dotted #999;

Thanks in advance!
