Excerpt macro uses different font size

I added the Excerpt macro to a page. Now those 2 paragraphs are displayed in a smaller font size.  How can I correct this, and have it use the style for the page?

  1. Inserted Excerpt macro.
  2. Copied 2 paragraphs from page into excerpt.
  3. Published.

The expert uses a smaller font size.

Looks like the css applied for paragraph is not applying due to the html structure of the excerpt macro.  I only saw this functionality on cloud and did not see it on server.  Are you on cloud or server?

@Bran (to close the loop)

When I asked the question, we were on cloud.  We moved to server a month ago, and the excerpt now uses the page styling.  So apparently excerpts use the page's css style on server.

This is a bug in Cloud, and has been reported here:
