Dreamweaver 4, Trouble changing font
Arial on Design View but still Times New Roman when I load the site.

I have completely changed the font to Arial in my design view. When I preview or load a page, some parts have the new font and some parts have the old font. It seems that everything that I made changes to manually has the new font and everything that I changed by going to Edit-Preferences-Font is unaffected. I have a very large site and it will be difficult to change everything manually. Please let me know

Have you heard of CSS? You can use one file to change the fonts, headings, layout, colours etc. Very useful.

You could try something like this in you page head:

<style type="text/css">
body { font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; }

or add it to an external style sheet for sitewide control like:

<link href="yourcssfile.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

This will adjust all your fonts to Arial. However if you are using font tags to then I suggest you just go in to the HTML and delete them. Find & Replace will help for the generic ones. I read somewhere that there is a font-tag-removal-pluggin tool - for sites needing first aid

Cheers, Limbo
