CSS Font Formatting

I am trying to format text via CSS but it doesnt seem to be applying.  I am looking for bold white text and I am getting plain black test.  Here is the HTML

<div class="bars">
    <img id="but1" class="blue">Account Remover</img>
    </div>

Open in new window


The CSS
.blue{
	font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size:18px; 
	font-weight:bold;
	color:#FFFFFF;
}

Open in new window


It should be centered on the blue bars.

If you are having alignment issues, you should open another question.  Alignment was not part of your original question.  

I do see you have added, "text-align:left;" to your css and that will make the text go to the left like this http://jsbin.com/EwasIZU/1/edit?html,css,output although the left align is the default.  You probably have other css that is taking over.   When you ask your next question, post a link to your page so experts can view what is going on.
