Using default font on email posts to Blogger

One minor but annoying issue that I've run into with email posting to Blogger blogs is that I haven't been able to figure out what to set the font to in Outlook Express so that Blogger will treat it is the "default" font so that the blog post will take on the default font for the selected blog template.

Blogger does a great job of giving you a bunch on well-designed blog presentation templates and one of the features is that your blog post will be reformatted with an appropriate font for that template style. It all works great, but it requires that you choose the default "Font" in the web-based blog post editor. Unfortunately, any font I choose in Outlook Express overrides the default, thus overriding the font chosen by the presentation template.

The "workaround" is to submit the post via email and then manually edit the post in Blogger's editor to set the font back to the default "Font".

Oh well.
