extra_css - need remedial help

I'd be grateful if someone could give me a basic understanding of the EXTRA_CSS capability.

I have gotten to the point where I have finalized a recipe so that the right content is created. However, the body of the articles generate into a size and font that is too big and not particularly easy to read.

I assume that EXTRA_CSS is the answer to this, but I haven't been able to figure out how to use this. Could I get a n00B tutorial on this?

I think my problem is simple. All of the article content is contained in a single tag that is similar to the following:

Code:
<div id="articleBody">			
<p> This is the text of the article that I would like to control.
</div>

Is there any easy way for me to determine the font and size of this content when it is the output of a recipe?


Thanks in advance.

extra_css just appends whatever css you specify to each downloaded file.

I'm not sure I understand ... Does that mean that I have an unsolvable problem?

The font size is controlled by the settings you have for base font size and the font size key in your conversion options.
