Hi,
I have two types of links (<a href>
The main type I want to use font size=14px.
but in the class="small" type I want to use 10px.
I set the class to the small types and use the CSS that is attached.
But it doesn't work (all the fonts are displayed in the large size (14px).
Please note that if I change the A:link in the CSS to 10px than all the links are small (10px) but this is not what I want.

Can you post your class declaration and HTML?

CSS would be

a {font-size:14px;}
a.small {font-size:10px;}

Just ensure your small links are like...
<a href="google.com" title="" class="small">This is a small link</a>

should work fine

ok,

Add this after each line for small font
a.small {font-size:10px !important;}

adding the ' !important' will mean it is more important than any other overriding styles.

If it still doesn't work, then post the html you are using. Thanks
