CSS to increase size of first word

This one has me kind of stumped. I want to make the first word of all the paragraphs in my #content div at 14pt instead of the default for the paragraphs (12pt). Is there a way to do this in straight CSS or am I left wrapping the first word in a span to accomplish this?

Answer

What you are looking for is a pseudo-element that doesn't exist. There is :first-letter and :first-line, but no :first-word.

You can of course do this with JavaScript. Here's some code I found that does this: http://www.dynamicsitesolutions.com/javascript/first-word-selector/
