The p style of course, cannot be applied to a box, so what is the work around?
I see you’ve already nailed this, but for those who might read this later on…
The “p” style shown in the Styles palette is what’s known as a ‘tag’
style. It isn’t meant to be applied by you to something… instead,
it will automatically be applied to any text that is wrapped in
paragraph tags, in the code that Freeway generates.
This means almost all text - the exceptions being text in lists, and
text wrapped in header (h1 etc.) tags.
This provides an effective way to set up base-level default type
formats for your site. Edit the p style, give it whatever settings
you like (font, size, colour, and so on), and hey presto! All the
otherwise unformatted text (except for lists and header text) will
magically take on those attributes. You don’t have to go around
applying styles, it just works.
Better still, if you want to have styles for different chunks of text
then just add the style parameters that are different from your p
style. If you want to keep the same typeface and size but change the
colour, simply make a new style with the different colour. It will
override the ‘default’ p style for that attribute but leave
everything else (font, size etc.) intact.
There’s one further thing you can do. If you would like to have a tag
style (one that isn’t applied by you) that controls ALL the HTML text
in your document, including header and list text, do this with a
style called “body”. In the Edit Style dialog type body into the Tag
field and delete whaever’s in the Name field. Apply your desired
settings to that style, click OK, and you’re done. The same effect as
with a p style, but the body style encompasses everything within the
opening and closing tags - which is everything in the body
of the page.
