Here’s a text formatting problem that I come across with Dreamweaver and chances are you do probably do as well.

Have you ever tried to change the format of a text? Perhaps you want to make it a larger font or smaller font. And no matter what you do it just won’t change. Let me show you what I mean. Let’s say I select this text here and you can clearly see that it’s 10 points. And let’s say I want to change this to 16 point font size. So I select the drop down menu, click on 16 and it doesn’t change. Let’s try again.

Let’s try and change it to 12 points. Still it won’t change. Well very simple way of fixing this problem- first thing we need to do is to understand a little bit about HTML. Now what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna edit the code source, because basically there’s a problem here with the HTML code for this text.

So let’s highlight it again and switch to ‘Code’ view. Now here’s the problem. As you can see, we have got 3 different styles applied here. And each style refers to the text formatting.
