Textarea font problem

tel 11 Nov, 2009

I'm having an issue where the entry text font is showing as Arial in textboxes, which is correct, but in textarea fields it's sans-serif. Using Firebug, I've determined that the CSS handling this is .form_element, however it should handle both of them. I've looked and can't seem to determine where else the problem could be.

The link to one of the forms can be found here:

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi tel,

Weird, it shows up as Courier for me not sans-serif but I can't see the font anywhere in the page. If you add style='font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;' into the <textarea ...> tag that seems to over-ride it.

Maybe it was Courier, heh. Anyway, your workaround resolves it. I forgot about editing the html from the admin panel. 😶

Thanks so much.
