How to set a default FONT with Windows Live Writer 2011

pxeqq31oWindows Live Writer is a great application for offline bloggers and it’s even better for users that have absolutely no technical experience with blogs or HTML or CSS, but what Windows Live Writer doesn’t do is handle changing fonts on the blog.
