Is someone going to be acting as an editor then, so that we have regular 
rotation of featured content?

Makes sense to highlight it more *if* there's a reason to do so... 
though I'd start with using color/shape to highlight and change font as 
a last resort.

Regarding styles on the <p>, I find they frequently result in problems 
and it usually works better to put styles (such as padding and 
line-height) on whatever div is wrapping it together, and then take 
styles off as needed for individual elements.  Just my experience.

Nice to know though, that the front page fix is simple.ish.
