Hello all, I am having trouble trying to set the default font in dreamweaver 4. Right now it seems to be set at new times roman and i want it set to arial. New times just makes my page look horrible. Anyway, i have tried and tried in dreamweaver help to find this and i found something but it dosent seem to work. The view in the dreamweaver program is in arial now, but when i preview the page, there it is in the ugly new times. I understand that I can just highlight all and change it to arial but this make my index page like 15k bigger than it need to be. Its already big as is. If i can get the default front to arial i should be good to go. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The default font is controlled by the browser, not by DW.

You can change it under the options in DW, but that won't affect the browsers.

I'm in to CSS now. Virtually all the main browsers support at least basic CSS.
