You almost got it right!!

Use the inline STYLE attribute with the element you want to influence, or
even better write a style sheet.

The following will accomplish what you want

<BODY STYLE="font-size:12pt;font-family: 'times new roman',times, serif;">

Note carefully the syntax and where the colons and senis are., the browsers
are very picky about this.

note the commas between the list of choices.

    A good basic site for style sheets is
