Hello ahayzen,
I hate inline styling - it's way too hard to debug.
Try styling a span instead.
Have a look at this example -
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
html, body {
font: 14px "Comic Sans MS";
background: #FC6;
* {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: none;
#container {
width: 800px;
margin: 30px auto;
background: #999;
overflow: auto;
.different {
font: 16px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
<div id="container">
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur <span class="different">sadipscing</span> elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna
