How To Simply Use A Drop Cap Large First Letter On Your Blog

Just read any magazine while reading you will surely watch a large first letter.Here I am giving a tutorial about dropping a large cap.This method needs just a few lines of Css to be added to your template then the first letter of every post on your blog will automatically be a drop cap.You can then choose the color and font of the drop cap.This effect can also be found on many blogs and websites.The effect is a large first letter stretching down three or four lines with the text wrapped around.The drop cap letter can also use a different font and can be a different color to the rest of the text.

How To Add It On Blogger?

  1. Go to Blogger Dashboard Design Edit HTML.
  2. Download/Backup your template.
  3. Now find ]]></b:skin>
  4. Paste below code just before ]]></b:skin>
