changing font in CMS editor

When content is edited in Power CMS, the font isn't displaying with the proper <p> size. You can see how the font is displayed on this webpage. http://www.csotte.com/executive-board.php#boardmembers under Board Members. Content area right hand column.

How did you expect the font to display? What did you edit? I need to understand more about what you are doing and what you expect so I can advise you on what you are missing.

It is missing a <p> tag... just wrap the content in a <p> tag and it will look like the rest.

Of course I can do that in Dreamweaver but if I've set up PCMS for my client to be able to make their own edits, it seems counter intuitive for me to have to go in behind the and make the edit in the code. Shouldn't PCMS assume the CSS tag definitions? If I have to make edits in Dreamweaver to their changes, that means I would need to charge them for my time which is what they are trying to avoid.

You have set up the CSS based on the P tag, so a P tag has to be present. In screnn.css on line 625 you have:

#content #lower2 p {
color: #32398e;
font-family: Segoe,"Segoe UI","DejaVu Sans","Trebuchet MS",Verdana,sans-serif;
font-size: 120%;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
line-height: 1.25em;
text-align: left;
}

Another solution would be to remove the p requirement in the css file so that the <p> tag isn't necessary in order to pick up the font. The content is always going to be subject to the css in context. On screen.css line 595 you have:

#content #lower2 {
text-align: center;
}

That is what is changing the alignment. Context is always going to be significant.
