Text not resizing

I know this is probably an elementary problem, but on this particular webpage that I'm updating, I'm selecting a text block to resize a bit larger, and it seems to look just the way I want it. But after I save the changes and upload the new page, I refresh the Internet webpage and it hasn't changed at all. I even went into a different browser, thinking that perhaps it was cached, but it was the same there. Everything looks changed in DW, but it doesn't change on the Internet. Does anyone have any ideas? FYI, I just create basic pages; I'm not a professional webpage designer by any means.

Scroll down about nine pages to the section called "Salvation By Faith Alone." Just underneath you'll see this block of text:

 

James chapter 2
Faith Alone?

 

It's larger font in my DW page, but online it's still too small.

This is the code

 

<p><span class="solidblack">James chapter 2</span><br>
  <a href="James - Faith and Works.html">Faith Alone?</a><br>
  <br>
  <img src="../../Bars/bar-bluemarble.gif" width="600" height="10"><br>
  <br>
  <b><font color="#000080"><font size=+2>The Gospel: Salvation By Grace
  Through Faith In Christ Alone.</font></font></b></p>

 

Nowhere can I find an indication that the font size should be greater than what is shown. Maybe you should have a look at https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_headings.asp

probably your HTML page uses a CSS style that is located on an independent and linked CSS page.
When you place the HTML page online, do you also place the dependent files, namely this CSS page ?

@Getoutandstayout  ... well, off-topic, in relation to your initial question, by digging into your code, there are several points that stand out and that you should take into account gradually in order to make your website evolve.

 

  • many tags, that you use, have become not only obsolete, but especially are not advised, like the FONT, CENTER tags. see to replace them by appropriate CSS classes.

  • the use of the TABLE tag to format content is not recommended, especially for display on mobile devices. Consider using CSS instead.

  • the use of attributes that affect the visual aspect of the tag such as background colors, size, width... etc... is not recommended, it is once again to use CSS for this purpose

  • avoid using particular names for CSS classes like dfydgn, zdfdng, vmxfgxg, fgrafvfvffv, reryjuyy, ghjffk etc... rather use names that will be explicit about the structure, or the nature of the element as (section_title, sub_section_element, emphase_string.... and also keep in mind to avoid names related to the visual, like blue_text or red_background... if tomorrow  you change the red to green you wont have to change the naming convention...

  • watch out for unnecessary redundancy, like using different classes to achieve the same functionality in the end, like dfydgn and zdfdng which both use the navy blue color and put the font in bold, or vmxfgxg and reryjuyy which put the font in bold...
    for each case, create only one class and reapply it to the concerned elements... that's the role of classes in CSS anyway

If you want to know more about these two subjects which are HTML markup and structuring, as well as the use of CSS, these three links could be useful if you don't already know them :
