Edit Add-on:

I found it: The initial font when you are composing is based on the setting in "Tools/Options/Read/Fonts" if you are in Outlook Express, but in Outlook the fonts seem to hold. My mistake, as I was doing initial tests in OE NOT Outlook.


I've set up an html doc to use as stationary; I want to have one font set for the body, and another for the text at page bottom.

But when I use it, the font I have specified doesn't kick in until I hit return, leaving an empty line at the top.

How can I fix the code so that it will set the first font rright from the beginning?

Stationary code is as follows (between the dash lines):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<font face="Arial" size="3">



<font face="Comic Sans MS" size="3">

When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute.

But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute - and it's longer than any hour.
