    The widget headlines and post title font sizes in my sidebar are much larger than the rest of the text on the site (and much larger than those in the template. Is there anyway to adjust this or is it a function of the font I’m using?

    Hello,

    Yes, some font families will appear larger than others at the same font-sizes. You can always just change the font-size with your own CSS customizations though.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    .fixed-sidebar .widget-title { font-size: ... }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
