So i have some javascript that is using jquery to call up the contents of  .txt file on my server.

The only problem is that the function ends up in a class

How can i call up this class to use inbetween the <p> and <h> tags of my choosing throughout the page

without messing up the formating layed out in the css

I would advice for you to change class fill to element fill. So name elements where you want to put content, like:

<p id="herePutSomeContent">

</p>

And then use function with hash ('#') to point to this element, like this:

$(document).ready(function() {
        $.get("headline2.txt", function(data){
                $('#herePutSomeContent').text(data);
        });
});
