Im using CSS for the first time to upgrade a customer response database from an MS word doc with embedded links to a full HTML document.

This is not a website, but a database on a local server of a corporate network using IE5.5 and Lotus Notes R5 (data is copied and pasted into emails and despatched)

Using CSS has been great for defining many of the formats of the HTML document.
When I copy the data from the HTML document and then paste it into a new Lotus Notes R5 email - the text size goes up to about 12 pt.

My (very small) CSS section of the HTML doc currently shows this:

<style type="text/css">
h1 {font-family: Arial;font-size: 150%;color: Blue;text-align: left}
h2 {font-family: Arial;font-size: 80%;color: Blue;text-align: left}
p {font-family: Arial;font-size: 60%;color: Black;text-align: left;LINE-HEIGHT: 10pt}
p.center {font-family: Arial;font-size: 60%;color: Blue;text-align: center}
</style>

Editing this effects the HTML output (as I would expect it to) but none of this translates when copied and pasted into an email.

What I need to know is: Is there a css technique for telling Lotus notes (or any other email client) to not change the text style, or is it a Lotus Notes issue that I need to address.
