I am trying to add an effect, like a magazine's "drop-cap," but it's not working for me, and I don't know why.

The following is the CSS code I have used:

.single .entry p:first-child:first-letter {
float: left;
color: #903;
font-size: 47px;
line-height: 40px;
padding-top: 0px;
padding-right: 8px;
padding-left: 3px;
font-family: Georgia;

That shouldn't be a matter of Wordpress, but of correct CSS and browser support. I don't like Wordpress, but this is likely to be caused by the author or the browser.

It looks like the first paragraph tag within the "entry" div tag on your page contains an image. If this paragraph tag contained text, the effect should work.
