    i just figured out that i can copy the html code from the post into the excerpt box and it will read. is that right?

    Unfortunately HTML is stripped from the WordPress excerpt function, so there’s no way you can do this.

    Sorry that’s not the answer you were hoping for.

    thanks for the response. i was able to include a bold tag for some of the text, however i was really trying to increase the font size of a few words to make an excerpt heading, just like the live demo of the linen theme shows: “singing sand,” “summer day,” etc. how did they do that?

    What you’re seeing in the demo is just the post title. Are you giving your posts titles?
