Sometimes Web Crossing site developers wish to change the font globally.

Answer

Use a <font> tag in the banner, and </font> in the footer.

This is subject to the whim of the browser (and version) you are using. Some browsers, like Netscape for example, will not carry the font change over to table cells. Each cell must explicitly state the font change as well.

With more modern browsers (and with Web Crossing version 5.0+ where you can edit style sheets directly...see related FAQs), the preferred method is to use style sheets. Consult a good CSS book as reference, but here is a brief example you would place in the <HEAD> section:

<style type=text/css>
<!-- a, address, b, big, blink, blockquote, body, center, cite, dir, dl, div, em, form, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, i, legend, listing, menu, object, ol, p, s, server, small, span, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, td, th, u, ul, var, xmp { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size=10;} code, kbd, pre, samp, tt { font-family: Courier, "Courier New", Monaco, monospace; } -->
</style>

With version 5.0+ you can Edit your Theme, go to the Global Settings link and adjust the CSS directly.
