a gentle reminder -- please trim your posts

what did you use, andrew?  i hope not benjer's

   <div id="big">The</div><div id="small">first words of an article.</div>

no offence, benjer, but span is clearly better than div in this case

and using an id is probably flawed, if you should ever want to pull the same
stunt, er, i mean, apply the same effect in a second paragraph

finally, by enclosing the rest of the sentence in a separate container, you
make yourself totally dependent on inheritance for the styles that are now
"one container out"

that's a painful way to learn css
