Hi breeze351,

This is very simple you just need to define some CSS for your class.

You can either wrap the whole section in a <div class="font"> and assign the font to the div by doing the following into your HTML code:

<style>
div.font {
    font-family: 'Tahoma';
}
</style>

Open in new window


Within this example I have used Tahoma as an example font, you would want to replace this with the name of your font that you wish for the table to be displayed in.

The other way you can do this is by assigning both <td> which contain the "Building Name" and "Crossing Streets" a class which they both share

<td class="Body_Labels">
Address
<span class="font_custom">Building Name</span>
<span class="font_custom">Crossing Streets</span>
</td>
...
<style>
span.font_custom {
    font-family: 'Tahoma';
}
</style>

Open in new window


Again this method allows you to take out and implement each sub level with a different font if needed at a later stage, as with the previous example I have used Tahoma as a font, you will need to change this to the font that is required.

HTH,
