I have a script on my website that requires an includes.php file to work. I am trying to control the font size of the links that it provides but I do not know how to do that. Can someone help me?

Here is the code on my site that gets the links:

<?=$Account?><BR>
<?=$Categories?>


Here is the code of my includes.php file:

<font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

<?

$q1 = "update re2_agents set AccountStatus = 'pending' where ExpDate <= '$t' and AccountStatus != 'pending' ";
mysql_query($q1) or die(mysql_error());

//get the settings
$qset = "select * from re2_settings";
$rset = mysql_query($qset) or die(mysql_error());
$aset = mysql_fetch_array($rset);

//get the categories 
$qi = "select * from re2_categories order by CategoryName";
$ri = mysql_query($qi) or die(mysql_error());

$Account = "<table width=120>\n";

if(mysql_num_rows($ri) > '0')
{
	while($ai = mysql_fetch_array($ri))
	{
		$Categories .= "<tr>\n\t<td bgcolor=#000000 font size=8><a class=BlackLinkC href=\"search.php?c=$ai[CategoryID]\">$ai[CategoryName]</a></td>\n</tr>\n";

		//get the subcategories

Oooh, that's a stack of code to wade through

You'd be better to have use a stylesheet and just control them that way

eg in your head section

<style>a {font-size: 12px;}
</style>

Only once you have it sorted the stylesheet should be in it's own file.

Have you used stylesheets before?

If not, someone maybe able to recommend a good intro tutorial

Sarah

i typed in the style code you gave me and the only thing it affects is my links size. how do i have it affect regular text?

Also, i do not know css. is there a quick lesson i could be told to make this work?

sarahk is right, the only way to control your font properties EFFECTIVELY is by using CSS style sheet or simply embedded css syle in each of your pages. Using CSS style sheet will also save your time in future modifications to your font size, type and background too. If you use dreamweaver or similar software, the software have handy tool to help you creating the style sheet.

I found this is the easiest to follow site to learn CSS: http://www.javascriptkit.com/dhtmltutors/css1.shtml

All the best!
