Hello. I can't seem to find options on how to change the font size on comments. So how can can the font size of comments be changed? And how can the font size of the date above the comment be changed? and one more thing, how do you change/edit the contents of the about page?

Thanks in advance and good job on the theme.

Font in comments

HTML Code:
ul.commentlist {
font-size: X.Xem;
}
comment date (and Reply link in WP 2.7 if paged comments enabled)
HTML Code:
div.comment-meta {
font-size: X.Xem;
}
About page: Like any other page, go to Site Admin -> Pages -> [Page Title] -> Edit

so if I understand this correctly you would make this change in the CSS/HTML inserts? To change font size of the comments?

okay. So i was able to affect font size and color. But what I'm trying to do is create a buffer or padding between the author date and the beginning of the actual comment. And trying to increase leading (line spacing) what I've done here but my attempts at margin and spacing don't affect anything:

Code:
ul.commentlist {
font-family: Verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #666666;
line-height: 16px;
top-margin: 1.1em;
font-size: .80em;
}
thoughts?

The date is inside div.comment-meta

HTML Code:
 div.comment-meta {
padding-bottom: 30px;
font-size: X.Xem;
}
em allows the font to resize when a visitor wants to resize all fonts a a website through his browser. % is similar but less predictable as it is always relative to the font size in a parent container. pt is meant to be used for print. px is the easiest to use but not resizable

what about linespacing within comments. I've tried

>> line-height: 16px;

but that doesn't seem to do anything?
