Can someone please tell me why the following snippet isn't formatting the
text correctly? I know it must be something really simple, but I seem to
have a blind spot for it.

<style type="text/css">
p {font-style: italic;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size: 14pt;
    font-family: arial, sans-serif;}

It has a syntax error, which you could have found using a validator.

Besides, formatting some text to a fixed font size (in points) is
virtually never correct in HTML authoring. Check the
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets FAQ - it explains this.

Now please tell me what your question about Dumbo, the elephant baby,
was. I'm disappointed - the Subject line suggested that there might be
something about that lovely character, instead of boring old HTML.
