Here's another problem message with fonts.  I have Thunderbird setup to
show only text (all messages converted to plain text).  Now how is this
message able to takeover my thunderbird font settings and make these
fonts appear huge!

Even as I reply to this message, my own reply fonts look huge too.

How I prevent this in Thunderbird?
