Changing font of incoming messages

Hi,

I would like to change the font of my incoming messages.  I saw the post at http://forum.digsby.com/viewtopic.php?id=5412 about customizing the css files.  I tried doing this myself without success.

I am using the Smooth Separate Lines theme with the Red. vs. Blue - (Time) Name variant.

In %DIGSBY_INTALL%\res\MessageStyles\Smooth Separate Lines.AdiumMessageStyle\Contents\Resources\Variants I found the file Red vs. Blue - (Time) Name.css

I added the following at the end to get blue 16 point font. 

.incoming .messages {
  color: #0000FF;
  font-size: 16px;
}

However, it did not have any effect even after restarting Digsby and even rebooting.  Can you help me do this correctly?

Thanks,
Mark

first, you should put your modified style in %APPDATA%\Digsby\MessageStyles\ so it won't get overwritten by updates.
second, it can't work since this messagestyle doesn't have a class "incoming", nor a class "message"
what it does have is

Code:

.incoming context
.nextmessagebody
.nextmessagetext

so you may want to edit those wink
tip: take a look at the sample.html in the smooth separete folder (a look at the source-text of it).

Tools|Options|Display|Formatting|Advanced
Clear the tick box that allows messages to use their own fonts. Set your own preferences for fonts and sizes. And you will get changed incoming fonts message...

am I to understand, that a layperson wanting to increase the font in the messages, is suppose to use formatting?

There must be an easier way.
