When you are editing your iRite that is on the page on the last screen of the interface you can set styles that are available in the editor. You can point to your own custom style sheet and select the styles that will be available from there. You can only select from custom styles, you will not be able to override the existing css for the h1 and other html tags.

You can specify a a style that will run thoughout the editor... I do this to get the bulk of the text to look as close as possible to what it will look like on the live site. While I have not styled heading tags specifically, I have defined a style to use throughout the editor.

I simply created a new style sheet with one style and use it in the "class" selector for your editor.

My CSS sheet looks like this:

@charset "UTF-8";
/* CSS Document */

.editor {
font-family: verdana, arial, Geneva, "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Grande";
font-size: 12px;
line-height: 1.2em;
color: #424242;
background-color: #ffffff;

So, now - even when I use heading 1, it DOES keep the font I supplied in my editor class.
