I usually have a ground style which i set on the BODY element. By setting
the same style rules on FONT, pre-CSS interpretation of FONT is overridden
- in most cases.

BODY, FONT, TD, TH {
	font-family: "Verdana", "Geneva", sans-serif;
	font-size: small;
}

...

<TD><FONT SIZE="1" FACE="geneva, arial">Blah blah</FONT></TD>

...
