View Full Version : Changing Font Colors

07-04-2009, 07:03 PM

I am getting confused between changing font colors for the whole site in CSS style sheets, and changing font colors for one word. I want to change the font color for one word, but when I do, the font colors for the entire site changes. What am I doing wrong? When I select the word and change the font color, they all change.

You don't say what version of Dreamweaver you're using (which might be helpful).

I suspect that, when you choose a color, you are creating a style for the body or p tag that ends up changing everything. You need to create a class style (can apply to any html element) and give it a name. It should then be applied to the selection (using a span tag).

Thanks for the info. As you can see, I'm new to DreamWeaver and I still haven't gotten the hang of these style sheets. I have CS4 MC. I need to go back and study the docs on style sheets. I see you offer a couse. I'm stretched a little thin now, but when I get some breathing room I may take it.
