    Hi all.

    I can’t for the life of me figure out why my header tags will only pick up the browser defaults and when I spec the h tag sizes, I can’t get it to change. There’s no inline CSS. Can someone please enlighten me? Ta!

    html, body, p, ul, ol, li, form, fieldset, legend
    {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    border: 0;
    font-size: 100%;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    }

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, { margin-top: 0; }

    fieldset,img { border: 0; }

    Validate the above CSS and you get a number of parse errors. It seems that some of the characters have become corrupted. Simply re-typing them should fix your issues.

    Also, the font-size declarations for the headings seem to be using an en dash instead of a hyphen.

    En dashes!!!! Thanks so much Josh. I initially pulled those sizes from a PDF to see what they looked like and that’s where they came from.

    No worries at all. Glad I could help!
