First, I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, or if it has been answered already. I did spend some time searching, but couldn't find an answer (though admittedly, I'm not quite sure of the terms to search for).

I'm running Media Wiki, and I have several contributors who have complained that the font size of the text field (when editing a wiki page) is too small, so I'd like to increase the default font size so it's easier for them to read what they are typing. I've figured out how to increase the default font size of displayed pages by adding the following code to the MediaWiki:Common.css file, but it doesn't affect the text fields for page editing. I would very much appreciate some help.


/* jwf--Make text larger */

#mw-content-text {

  font-size: 1.000em;

}


/* jwf--Make text larger */

#bodyContent {

  font-size: 1.000em;

}

/* Edit textarea */
#wpTextbox1 {
    font-size: 1.5em;
}

/* Edit summary */
#wpSummary {
    font-size: 1.5em;
}
