I am working on a flash slide show file on the website www.greenwoodridge.com .  I added a text description to the top of the photos (except the first slide)  I believe this text is controlled by the slides.xml file.  I have attached the code below.  I want to make the description text larger.  Can I add a font size to the xml file to increase the font?  If so, please provide the code and the required location in the file.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<flash_parameters copyright="socusoftFSMTheme">
    <preferences>
        <global>
            <basic_property movieWidth="530" movieHeight="360" startAutoPlay="true" backgroundColor="0x999999" continuum="true" html_title="Title" loadStyle="Bar" socusoftMenu="false" hideAdobeMenu="false" photoDynamicShow="false" enableURL="false" transitionArray=""/>

Seeing the xml it seems changing the fonsize in the attribute "cssText" might do the trick.
Though not sure how the flash handles this after parsing.

Thanks deep,

I don't think that would do it since those two text colors are bright orange and the other blue.  The text I want to change is black.  I think I would need another piece of code.

Okie, that means the cssText is not being used.

So try using the font tag directly within the CDATA and see. It may work provided the description field accepts htmlText format.
