Using Drop Caps in Posts

When composing your posts, start them off like this (be sure you’re using the HTML Editor, not the Visual Editor!):

<span class="drop_cap">T</span>his is my paragraph.

Customizing Drop Caps Styles

Place this code in custom.css as a starting point:

.custom .format_text .drop_cap {
  font-family: Verdana;
  font-weight: bold;
  font-size: 1.8em;
  color: #555555;
