Changing font size on click

How do I change the font styles of a <span id="blah"></span>? I've seen it done somewhere else before, but forgot the code.

Do you want something like the following?  Hope that helps.

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function changeFont()
{
  var theSizeStr = document.getElementById("size").value;
  var theSize = parseInt(theSizeStr)/100;
  document.getElementById("blah").style.fontSize = theSize + "em";
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
Size to change to (in %): <input type="text" id="size" value="100" /><br />
<a href="#" onclick="changeFont()">Change Font Size</a><br />
<span id="blah">
Some text goes here.  It will grow/shrink depending on what you enter above.
</span>
</body>
</html>

if you change this line
<a href="#" onclick="changeFont()">Change Font Size</a><br />
to this
<a href="javascript:void( 0 );" onclick="changeFont()">Change Font Size</a><br />
the browser wont scroll to the top of the page, the only thing i dont like is that it will dispaly javascript:void( 0 ) in the window status.

Justin,
Yeah, I know, but it's both a personal preference and force of habit.  I really dislike the "javascript: void(0)" showing up in the window status.  For small examples like this, I don't care about the scrolling, since the whole page is visible anyway.

you can get rid of the scolling back to the top of the page by returning false

<a href="#" onclick="changeFont();return false;">Change Font Size</a><br />

Try this:
<span onClick="this.style.fontSize='25px'">Test</span>

Hope this helps!
