Hi Guys,

Please find two 'offending' maps highlighted in bold below. They should line up under the middle column under the quote. What's the problem?

And I can't seem to increase the size of the <H1> text to run across the full length of the article. Why not? Also in bold!



<h1 class="home_header" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;">Stevenson Trail - one fine route in a format to suit you</span></h1>

[blockquote align="right"] Overall amazing experience - life changing!"
John &amp; Therese from Australia.[/blockquote]

<span style="font-size: large;">[dropcap1 color="orange"] <strong>S[/dropcap1]tevenson Trail (GR 70)</strong> is not only a classic walk, but the benchmark for leisure hiking experiences - it's your chance to walk the world’s original recreational hike.</span>

<span style="font-size: large;"><a href="http://walking-holidays-france.com/wordpress/2003/stevenson-trail/rls-map-new/" rel="attachment wp-att-2090"><img class="alignright size-full wp-image-2090" title="RLS MAP - new" src="http://walking-holidays-france.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/RLS-MAP-new.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="640" /></a>The Robert Louis Stevenson Trail links Le Monastier, near Puy-en-Velay in the Haute Loire, to St Jean du Gard in south-eastern Cevennes, a distance of 156-miles/252 kms. Walked by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1878, it inspired him to write Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes (1879). That ground-breaking book is considered a classic of outdoor literature and set the standard for travelogues. Moreover, Stevenson can be considered in many ways to be the pioneer of the whole modern hiking movement, as the book was the first to present hiking and camping as recreational activities.</span>

<span style="font-size: large;">Stevenson Trail sees you walking what’s now considered one of the top ten trails in France, increasingly popular with hikers wishing to retrace RL Stevenson’s footsteps. If you are someone who loves classic inn-to-inn trails, then this hike across volcanic upland and down steep schist valley is guaranteed to delight you; and if you only ever do one trek, this is arguably the one for you to do.</span>

<span style="font-size: large;"> Stevenson Trail brings you wholesome food, or produits du terroirs, in welcoming accommodation - in stark contrast to Stevenson,
who slept out in a <a href="http://walking-holidays-france.com/wordpress/2003/stevenson-trail/stevenson-trail-departments/" rel="attachment wp-att-2095"><img class="align right size-full wp-image-2095" title="Stevenson Trail departments" src="http://walking-holidays-france.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Stevenson-Trail-departments-e1299092442613.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="149" /></a>proto-type sleeping bag that he engineered himself. It was rather heavy, thus his decision to trek with a donkey. We transport your luggage for you, so all you need to carry across Auvergne and Languedoc is your light daypack.</span>

<span style="font-size: large;">[dropcap1 color="orange"] <strong>S[/dropcap1]tevenson Trail (GR 70)</strong> is much more than just a great walk - it sets the standard that all other fine trails have to match.</span>

And I can't seem to increase the size of the <H1> text to run across the full length of the article. Why not?

I don't know either. But maybe if you posted your CSS for <h1> someone could take a guess. If it's fixed text intended to fit a fixed size (the width of the image) you might get away with setting a size in pixels (not points). You'd have to constrain the font family pretty closely, though, since font-size goes by height, not width.

Are all those separate spans intended to be paragraphs? Why don't you wrap them all in a single div with font size set to taste? Percentages are more reliable. Absolute sizes ("medium", "large" etc.) are subject to UA interpretation.

And what on earth is all that business in square brackets? Are you in the middle of converting from some other format?

OT: is your content aimed strictly at British readers? Americans have no idea what "en suite" means. (But would be shocked at its absence in anything professing even one star, so maybe it doesn't matter.)

Hi Lucy,

This coding is generated by a Theme I am using and its shortcodes. Thus the "large," brackets and spans.

It's a mystery to me, too!
