hi donald

did you write the code you are editing yourself?

the error message you previously posted came up because tags are deprecated (not considered best practice), but from my understanding using them wont hurt your ranking/display of pages either.

if you remove the tags correctly the text they format will revert to the CSS formatting of you page. if you want to retain your current formatting but still want to remove the tags you will need to replace them with CSS.

if you look at my thread "what does this mean?"... you'll see why I was concerned. I tried Website Grader and the first time I did it, it came up with a grade of 48 and then I fixed some things that would help such as joining digg and posting some articles from my site and some other stuff... the one thing it said that I couldn't fix was, although it's not a critical area, your pages seem to have tags in your html. tags aren't the preferred choice but rather css.... or something like that.

have you used a text or html widget to enter your code with the font tags? can you post a link to the relevant page and your code here for me to look at?

well... I've used a text widget... but all widgets have an html code that we have access to... this is the exact message from the grader...

Font Tags Found in HTML

We found some HTML font tags on this page. While this is not a critical issue, you should use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to separate your website's content from its appearance.

sorry donald - i assumed you had edited the html and added the font tags yourself because i didn't think any of the code yola generates uses font tags. if you haven't added the font tags in yourself it's probably best not to change it.

i haven't used any text widgets on my site so i'm not sure if it's normal for the text widget to use font tags, but i did just have a look at the text widget on my test site and i can't see it generating any font tags like the ones i can see in your source - it may be related to your template?

i would say again that since they're not doing you any harm there's no need to worry
