problem with font size in captions

I have tried many ways to keep the font size of my captions nice and small, but every time i convert them in caliber they appear in the same font size as the body text. I tried outputting to epub and changing in sigil. It looked good in sigil, but then when i out put in caliber it still doesn't work.

Any recommendations?

Put:

<font size=-2> ... </font>

around your caption. This will make the text 2 points smaller than the body text. Adjust the number to suit, of course.

Two points or two "steps"?

Good point. I think it's "steps", isn't it? Whatever it is, it works .
