Ricky,

You have to be in the full editor screen, where the buttons at the top of the posting screen are active, i.e. not greyed-out.

Select the text and use the font drop-down menu to select a different font.

Is it grey or gray?
 
Grey is the preferred spelling in British English, but gray is more common in American English.

What you say is correct, but either spelling is correct in English anywhere.

As a paid periodical editor, may I give my opinion on fancy fonts and features?

"The best text typefaces are easy to read in long blocks of copy. They do not call much attention to themselves and have been designed to perform best between 6-point and 14-point. Conversely, display typefaces are used to entice a reader into text copy, to create a mood or feeling, or to announce important information. Sometimes, they accomplish all these purposes at the same time. They are intended to stand out, and they perform well when they are appropriate."

Typography is not something most people appreciate or even fully understand. In publishing, it is a very important aspect.

FWIW, the standard text font used at Slotblog is Arial 14 point, which is very readable even for my old eyes, although I do keep my browser set at one zoom in.

Thanks, guys, for all the help. Turns out it's the phone I'm using. Isn't technology a beautiful thing! LOL.
