Bag the directly applied fonts altogether and go with Cascading
Style Sheets. FrontPage 98 supports style sheets but forces you
to set them up manually. Style sheets easily and cleanly replace
everything you can do with font tags and, according to statmarket.com,
they are supported by 95% of the browsers in use on the WWW.

To get rid of the font tags, simply select a range of text and
from the Format menu, select Remove Formatting.

For information on why you should from the Evil Empire itself:

Refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article #Q180827 for how to
set up CSS with FP98.

Have Fun.
