+1 ... looking at the code in other ePubs that display the type of formatting you're trying to emulate is always a good idea.

Also check out W3schools' CSS tutorials. While ePub doesn't support everything in CSS it does support a goodly portion of it.

BTW, you might find that you also need to add a font-weight attribute to the CSS suggested by theducks in order to get the effect you illustrate

.bigletter {font-size: 175%; font-weight: bold;}
