Frybyte, thanks so much. Nope, that is definitely NOT information that I previously had. I tried it and it worked like a charm. Not very obvious though, is it? You would think that under Preferences, Composition, they would have the font family, size and color all readily available. Instead, you have to set the font itself in the Fonts area, and the color in the very misleadingly named HTML options area of Composition. Even in the Fonts dialog, it is not clear what you are setting... I think a bit of GUI improvement is in order!
Thanks again, much appreciated!
