Confluence displaying multiple fonts within a text-data field

Hoping I might get some thoughts here... I have a particular field within a template that routinely displays content using different fonts/font sizes, even though it's specified to use a specific font/size. The content looks like same when filling in the field. It's when you save the form that the difference in font/font size is apparent. The picture below is not the best... it's better viewed at

The code looks like:



{td:style=padding:5px;font-size:12px;font-weight:bold;font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif;background:#cae3f6;color:#333333;border-bottom:1px solid #cae3f6;border-right:1px solid #cae3f6|colspan=6|width=600px}{center}Notes{center}{td} 
{td:style=padding:5px;font-size:12px;font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif;border-bottom:1px solid #CCCCCC;border-right:1px solid #ebebeb|colspan=6}{text-data:statusNotes|width=600px|height=60px|type=area}{td}

Dave, try mixing serif & sans-serif in your image -- it's tricky to see what you're trying to say.

Hi David,

The image above is a screenshot of the actual output... I'm talking about the content in the white area below the "Notes" title. The first paragraph appears to be just a smaller font size than the other two paragraphs. Which shouldn't be the case since the field was defined to use a 12px, Microsoft Sans Serif font (the second {td:...} declaration above. Does the following link help explain it a bit better?
