Small Font Size in SharePoint Discussion Board

This has come up in a few SharePoint sites I have worked on, and I am not the only one experiencing this issue. This is a common issue which sometimes occurs when using a custom Master Page and custom Style Sheet in a site. I’ve seen this occur on at least 2 or 3 separate sites using non-default master pages and page layouts. The font size displays with 0.7em, you need to override it so its at least 1.0em

To fix this you need to identify the SharePoint CSS classes which are setting the Font size, I like to use the FireBug plug-in with Firefox (right-click and Inspect Element) to identify the overrides required then implement the CSS overrides in your custom Style Sheet to increase the font-size.

table tr td.ms-disc-bordered-noleft
{
border-left-width:1px;
padding:0px 10px 5px 10px;
font-family:verdana;
font-size:.7em;
text-align:left;
}


Here is the css entry that will modify the font...change to 1em or more, depending on needs
