    Do you think styling keywords in h1 can reduce the seo value of the keyword? I am talking about styling like this:

    <h1 style="font-size: 20px; font-weight: normal;">keyword_keyword</h1>

    Also is it possible some article directories to reject article that contain css styling like this?

    Not at all dude. Heading is a heading. As long as it's visible, its still a big ranking factor. Not sure about the article thing though. Doubt its a problem...

    SEOQuest,

    Google crawls text so as long as the characters in your header are still text, you should be fine.

    For the article directories, some of them have guidelines on what kind of code you can have embedded in your article. For instance some may allow for only HTML (i.e. anchor tags) and not CSS. I wouldn't be surprised if some of them stripped out the CSS on submission or if it just didn't render correctly once the article was live.

    For example ezine articles allows some HTML tags but ironically they do not allow header tags. There is no mention of CSS in their terms. They also have a WYIWYG editor so you could potentially make headers a certain style if the directory had something like that.

    Best,
