Does anyone know where the css file is located that controls the text for the date/login/tos/(c)? I'm assuming its in a css file and have tried changing a lot of things, but can't get that darn text to change (looking to alter font, color and size).
Any advice would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much for your help. In the skin.css file there was no .SkinObject line, so I created it and that worked for the text I was describing (like the date) but it didn't work for the links (logout, username, etc.). I added a set of class styles under
the .SkinObject to try and modify this (a:link, a:visited, a:active, a:hover) but the links remain the original blue.
Any other suggestions? Your help so far has been great, thank you again.

Sorry I wasn't very clear in that post. The SkinObject class is in the default.css file (/Portals/_default/) so you can change it there or better still copy from there to you skin file and make any changes.
The Skinnning doc in your Documentation folder has a full list of default classes used by the various skin objects

Thanks again, your help has been great. One more question. Is there a way to change the font color between the upper and lower .SkinObject texts? I would like the login, user, date along the top to be one color, and the (c), terms, etc. along the bottom
to be another.
Any help would be greatly apprecaited as usual.

Glad to be of help.
The way to do this is to create (or use) a new class for those items.
So you could copy the SkinObject classes into skin.css and rename them (say)
.Terms. So you would now have;
font-family: Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica;
Now change the colors etc to reflect the look you want.
To get terms and other DNN objects to use the new style you can directly edit the relevant skin ascx file to this;
<dnn:TERMS runat="server" id="dnnTERMS" CssClass="Terms" />
If you are instead editing the html files and uploading them as a Skins package in DNN you would instead change the skins.xml file to add;
