I was looking at this post (http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...&highlight=seo) while doing some research and it raised an interesting question.

If we override the H1, H2, settings etc. by changing the x.x em values in style.css or, for another for instance, "Headling Box: Text" ... will this mess up or mess with SEO?

As a for instance, I was looking to bring down the font size of my post titles just a bit -- ex: font-size: 1.75em; -- but I don't want to do that if SEO is going to get confused.

A newbie question, no doubt (in part because I haven't turned on SEO yet), but I figured I'd better ask while I was fine tuning my blog-site rather than find out after wards.

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure whether Google checks the font sizes in the CSS rules. The H1/H2 SEO issue refers to whether H1 or H2 or none of these are being used, not to the actual size of the text inside these tags.

Thank you, Flynn. I know you must be slammed right now working on the new version so I appreciate you taking the time to answer. It was one of those subtle points of setting up a blog-site.

Another donations is on its way.
