How do I increase font-weight in my "Sources" menu. (url below in signature) I have put font-weight:800; almost everywhere in the css to try to increase the weight of the link text on the menu. But nothing seems to work.:confused:

What am I doing wrong. I can increase the font-weight on hover but not on passive. I am obviously way off track. Help would be appreciated.
Never thought that I would get held up on such a simple thing as this.:D

Your rule is probably being overridden further down in your file.

Put it either at the very end or attach !important.

Uhm… could this be because your text is bold already? There’s nothing bolder than bold.




#links ul a (line 137)
{
color: #ffffff;
font-size: 1.4em;
font-weight: bolder;
text-decoration: none;
}

Thank you VIPStephan,

I have now sorted it out by choosing a bolder font.

Huh?

#links ul a {
color: #fff;
font-family: Calibri, non-serif;
font-size: 1.2em;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: none;
}I think you're looking for sans serif, mate =P

But practically no one has Calibri...

I have already altered that, but what font do you suggest. Non serif and as clear.

9px Lucida Sans @ a 1.5 line height looks very similar.

font: bolder 9px/1.5 "Lucida Sans", Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

Thanks CyanLight,

I have done so with slightly increased size.

Many thanks
Frank
