Dear Jeff,
I took a look at your 'Yemls pages, as a fan of CSS! Looking at the source
code, it seems to have been generated by a program rather than typed by your
good self (witness the large number of "font-size:100%" entries, which are
the defaults and which you would not usually need to type). You may also
find some of the font types will not be shown by many users; they can only
display the fonts they have on their own machines, so it's best to stick to
generic fonts like "sans-serif" rather than specific typefaces.
 Two attributes I find useful with text are "margin-right/left" which you
can set in pixels or
percentages of the page width, and "line-height", excellent for making large
amounts of text readable. I prefer to use percentages with margins as you
don't know what screen resolutions your visitors are using (though with a
little bit of DHTML you can find out, and write a few lines of JavaScript to
change settings). Line-height I like to set at about 1.3 to 1.6. Anyway, you
might find some of this handy (or not!)
Mike
