php – Is there a way in css to clear all font-family + font-size style declarations?

Questions:

I have a page which is a cms/wysiwyg/ms word nightmare.

It pulls many paragraphs of text from a database, some of which have retained ms word’s bizarre html tags – including font declarations!!! ahh!

In one sentence I can have things like:

<span style="font-family:Verdana">this is some</span>
<span style="font-family:arial">ugly text!</span>

I was wondering if there is a way of removing all font-family and font-size styles so they will adapt the master stylesheet css?

I’d prefer to not get into massive preg_replace conditions if I can avoid it.
Thanks

How to&Answers:

CSS:

span {
    font-family: initial !important;
    font-size: initial !important;
}

Answer:

Well, if you’re getting inline styles in many places, I would add this to the body CSS

body {
     font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;
     font-size: 16px !important;
 }

If you notice that all of the inline font styling are going on spans, you could target spans instead of the body.

I chose these two fonts because they are the “default” fonts for Windows and Mac/iOS.
Of course you can choose your own font size. The only unfortunate part about this is if you want a different font and font size in other places you’ll have to use more !importants.

Answer:

You can use the !important rule for this. But you will have to explicitly define each element you want it to go on (or use the universal selector *)

* { font-family: Tahoma, sans-serif !important; }
