[SOLVED] BUG Styling BYLINE???
 
Hi,

I'm trying out the Atahualpa theme and I'm having strange issues while styling the BYLINE. I'm using Atahualpa 3.5.3 on Wordpress 3.0.1.

The following renders correctly: By %author% posted %date('M jS Y #a#t g:iA')%

The following renders strangely: <span style="text-transform: none; font-family: georgia,serif !important; font-style: italic; color: #666666; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px;>By <span style="color: #111111;">%author%</span> posted %date('M jS Y #a#t g:iA')%</span>

What I want is the same style Engadget uses. I'd like for it to look like the following:

Any ideas what's going on here?

oops. I found one of my own mistakes. I forgot to put a close quote on the style section of the first span.

I'm still having an issue where the %author% doesn't display in the darker color:

<span style="text-transform: none; font-family: georgia,serif !important; font-style: italic; color: #666666; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px;">By <span style="color: #111111;">%author%</span> posted %date('M jS Y #a#t g:iA')%</span>

Yay! I fixed my own problem.

I had to use a FONT tag to change the color of the text inside the span.

<span style="text-transform: none; font-family: georgia,serif !important; font-style: italic; color: #666666; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px;">By <font color="#111111">%author%</font> posted %date('M jS Y #a#t g:iA')%</span>
