If you are using firefox I would install the web developer toolbar to change things like this.

 

- When installed, visit your blog.

- Then in the css menu, go to "view" style information" and choose it.

- Then hover over for example "home" and click on that word and you should get a red border around it and on the lower part of firefox you should see the css file.

- In that css file you would now see something like "#navigation ul li a" (can be named something else in your css)

- Copy the line saying "#navigation ul li a", then in the css menu, disable the view style...

- Then in the same menu choose "Edit css", in the lower part of firefox you now see your css file in edit mode, paste "#navigation ul li a" in to the search box, and click the magnifier.

- If all works as wanted, you will now see the css for "#navigation ul li a" and in there you find the font size and can change it.

- When done, save the file (disc icon) to your computer and upload the file to the folder where current css file is.

I don't want to get too much into the debate here about pixel v's em - but generally pixels is great for what it looks like on your computer and doesn't easily allow others ( say with poor eyesight) to change it, so em's is a better way of doing things for complete flexibility.

 

If you haven't made any changes on your system, and use defaults - then 1em = 16px (12px would be 0.75em etc).

 

You can change image sizes, yes, although you can often lose a bit of quality in doing so. Any graphics package should be ab;e to do that for you ( eg irfanview).

Maybe this will help you: SITE LINK

 

Aa quote from this page states:

 

li

The #sidebar li assigns a style to the actual list item. Here you can set the format to include a bullet or not. You can also change the font, font-size, or color, and you can even add borders.

 

Scroll down about 1/3 of the page until you see: li

 

Hope this helps.

Did you do as Thomas suggested and install Firefox and the Web Developer Toolbar plugin for Firefox? With that browser and plugin you would be able to edit your CSS file while looking at your site. Then you save the CSS file and upload it once you've made all the changes you want. It makes the whole process so much easier.

 

As for the comment font size look somewhere in the CSS file for tags that contain "comments".

Whenever I'm searching for a particular piece of code within my CSS I use FF Web Developer. It permits me to make and see changes before they become a permanent part of the CSS. It's a bit of trial-and-error but it helps me acquaint myself with the code within the CSS and makes future changes much easier. I highly recommend you try Web Developer. :clapping:
