I am the webmaster of Palo Alto High School's online publication, The Paly Voice. We're using Wordpress, and for some reason occasionally chunks of stories change fonts. Here is an example.

I inspected it, and there's no surrounding element - just text. But why? How can I fix this?

The paragraphs that show up differently are not inside <p> tags. Therefore the font rule in your story.css file (line 111) does not apply to them. To fix this you can do one of two things:

  1. Put the paragraphs that are showing up with the wrong font inside <p> tags.
  2. Add a new rule in story.css for the entire section that sets the font. The rule would be something like this:

    .story-content {
        font-family: Georgia;
        font-family: Georgia, serif;
        font-size: 14px;
        line-height: 1.7;
        margin: 20px 0;
