I was converting some Court Cas into posts.  I was using the H1 tag for the names of the parties (i.e. JOHN SMITH, Plaintiff v. ROBERT JONES, Defendant.) and then using the H2 tag for the Court (Circuit Court of Appeals, 10th Circuit).  I was getting some really weird results.

 

For instance, I had the party names setup to use multiple lines like this:

JOHN SMITH, Plaintiff

v.

ROBERT JONES, Defendant.

 

Well, the line-height was such that everything was vertically scrunched up.  The "v." was displaying on top of "JOHN SMITH, Plaintiff" and "ROBERT JONES, Defendant" was displaying on top of "v."  I tried to add some CSS stuff in the Custom.css file and was still having problems.

 

Well, come to find out H1 and H2 tags are special.  The H1 tag is used for the Header Site Name and H2 is used for the tagline.

From WordPress, please refer to:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Des.....g_Headings

 

From the Thesis User's Guidge:  "Furthermore, please be sure that you do not choose Heading 1 or Heading
2—those have been reserved only for post titles and should not be used
within posts themselves."  Here is the link:  http://diythemes.com/thesis/rt.....ling-tips/

 

The fix is to use the WordPress HTML editor and write something like this:

<h1 style="text-align: center; line-height: normal; font-weight: bold;">JOHN SMITH, Plaintiff<br />v.<br />ROBERT JONES, Defendant</h1>

Reece, an alternative to this is to create a style and then apply that style to the names.  You definately do not want to use H tags for those names.  For example you could create the style:

 

.custom .format_text emphasis
{
   font-weight:bold;
   font-size: 110%;
}

And then you just need to put the -emphasis- tags around the text in the text editor

Rick,

I tried that technique with some of my POSTS and it didn't work.  It was VERY frustrating.  No typo's, no missing double quotes, colons or semi-colons - it still wouldn't work.  I know I am not crazy!

So, that is when I went to the inline method.

A couple of days latter, quite by accident, I came across another post in a Thesis forum describing the same issue.  (I think it was diythemes.com.)

Evidently, THESIS uses the "!important" tag in its CSS which basically means that the THESIS CSS treatment wins over my customer.css settings.  (Please notice that it is exclamation point + the word important.)  Very interesting.

I don't know if that is what happened, but I would bet money on it.  (Not a lot of money, but a little money.)
