I use styles in Dreamweaver
When I use H1 for headings the height of the line space seems about double what it is normally.
I would like to reduce this but cannot find the method.

Any ideas please?
Many thanks

John

edit your css

On the css pane, select New CSS Rule.

Choose Tag

Select h1

Select New style sheet if you don't have have or "this style sheet" if you are using one currently.

Click on 'Type' on the left under category

Select the font size and line-height you want to use.  If you have h1 at 28px, try line height of 28px.  Play with the 2 settings until you get what you like.

you can also add these css on top of your  page,

h1 {
  font-weight: bold;
  color: #fff;
  font-size: 32px;
}

h2 {
  font-weight: bold;
  color: #fff;
  font-size: 24px;
}

Open in new window

Thanks
I think I have the styles code correct for h1
h1 {
      font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
      font-size: 24px;
      font-weight: bold;
      color: #FFFFFF;
}
but if you have a look at http://lepagemarketing.co.uk you will see the h1 marked words CABLE GLANDS & TERMINAL BLOCKS has a large space over and under the text. it is the space I am trying to remove.

I think you have put in <TR>, <TD> .. instead just try in single row with line break.

You could use DIV section on the same styles used.

The gap is caused by a default margin. Just add a margin rule to your style:

h1 {
      font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
      font-size: 24px;
      font-weight: bold;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      margin:0px;
}
