URGENT! I am trying to add a metallic gradient to text. I followed a tutorial for the letter "W", but having problems applying it to 3 lines of text.

I followed the tutorial from the following webite: http://www.tutorialwiz.com/bronze_text/

As I said, it works well for one letter, but when I apply the gradient overlay to the entire centered text heading, the linear gradient applies the lightest color to the top line, gradually getting darker on the third line. I want the gradient effect on each letter. Thanks in advance.

You will have to handle each line of text separately. When you apply a gradient from top to bottom across multiple lines of text, the gradient is applied from the top of the first line to the bottom of the last line - not from the top of each line's letters to the bottom of each line's letters. So, what you probably do is create separate layers for each line of text (you can use your existing text layer to get the vertical spacing right if needed, then delete that layer), and apply your steps to the text in each layer.
