[Pro] Styling a list

Hi

I seem to have a persistent style issue I can’t resolve easily. At the bottom of the page linked to, there’s an inline two-cell table. I created it to hold make a two-column list of useful links.

The text in each cell has been styled using the same style as the rest of the page, but has had the list attribute applied. The problem is this text resolutely refuses to display in the custom web font, and shows only as Times.

I’ve tried all combinations and I can’t get it to play nicely. Help!

Thanks

Heather

Hi Heather,

This is a simple case of over-specificity. You’ve styled the list as
class=“BodyText” but in the stylesheet it is defined as “p.BodyText” so it
can never affect the list, only the paragraph tags. If your style were just
“BodyText”, then it would work.

Aha! Thanks Ernie!

To be honest, I’m not sure why I’ve used a list anyway. I think I’ll revisit using a normal paragraph style to remove the spacing.

Fwiw - I think a list is a better choice… it’s semantically meaningful in
the way you are using it.

If you want to style the list appearance, here’s a better approach:

Don’t style your paragraph text with a class style – put the BodyText
properties into the p tag, then you don’t need to do anything to your
paragraphs - just leave them unstyled.

Now you can be free to use the BodyText style just for the list. While a
list style can affect most of your text requirements, the only way to style
things text margins (before and after) is to create a custom style for the
list items - “.BodyText li” would accomplish that.

I have written a small article about how to style lists in Freeway Pro. Maybe this can also help you?

Bart, thank you. That was very helpful. I’ve followed your steps and it’s working the way I wanted it to now.
