Firefox and OWA

I have designed an html newsletter which works well in many browsers and on pc and mac platforms, but when i try viewing in firefox via Outlook Web Access, font size, color and family designations disappear. it doesnt matter if i code the TD or the P or H1 tags..

even a simple test like this gives me zilch.

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
    <td style="font-size:11px; line-height:16px; font-family: verdana; color: #333333;"><span style="font-size:11px; line-height:16px; font-family: verdana; color: #333333;">This is a test for firefox</span></td>
    <td style="font-size:22px; line-height:16px; font-family: georgia; color: #ff9933;">This is a test for firefox</td>

both cells look identical-- black serif 12ptish text.

what am i missing?

thank you in advance (hopefully).

Apparently, Outlook Web Access has a lot of OS based variation in how it renders - see Anna Banane's post here:

We haven't tested much with it, but would suggest you try the simplest possible case - just styling <p> tags with no tables, and see what is supported.

dont use style primarily for font formatting, use <font> and define face, color and size 1, 2 or 3

our emails look fine in Outlook Web Access doing this.

i put some results of my tests here...
