hi karin

not to pick on you or anything, but what's wrong with <h1> through <h6> for
that purpose?

and darrell, i hope i didn't come across as suggesting that you use "only a
larger font size"

on the contrary, i was trying to say don't use a smaller size

my advice is don't touch the font size at all -- let it default

use <h1> through <h6> where appropriate

use <small> where appropriate

use <em> and <strong> where appropriate

this will cover 95% of all your day-to-day needs, and color will do the

plus, this strategy is *really* cross-browser   ;o)
