New Changes to the 'FAQ: How do I change the font in my journal? '

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<span [...] font-size:12pt;">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

<span style="font-family: Georgia, Century Schoolbook, Verdana, Arial" font-size:12pt;">
The FAQ for "<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=12">How do I change the font in my journal?</a> " has been change to reflect some problems that were detected with users using 'html' within the CSS (Cascade Style Sheet) definitions where it's interfering with the background and vice versa (one taking precedent over the other).

With that, the new CSS definition for changing the font style for entire journal style is something like:
<blockquote style="line-height:14pt;">
body, font, td, div, p {
font-family: "<span style="color:#000000; background-color: yellow; padding:3px;">some_font_name_here</span>", "<span style="color:#000000; background-color: lightblue; padding:3px;">another_font_name_here</span>";
font-size: <span style="color:#000000; background-color: #00ff00; padding:3px;">some_font_size</span>;
color: <span style="color:#000000; background-color: #d0d0d0; padding:3px;">some_font_color</span>;

Anyone reading my journal should make this change on his/her overrides or personal customized journal styles.
