Fonts in Netscape vs. IE

I'm somewhat new to HTML so bear with me:)  I created a Web page using FrontPage.  When I view it in IE 5.0, the Arial font shows up.  When I view it in Netscape 4.08 it reverts to Times Roman.  My Netscape font preferences say to use document specified fonts.  What do I need to do so that it displays the Arial font in Netscape?  Here is my html code:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="Program" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>Manual</title>
</head>

<body>
<font face="Arial">
<table border="0" width="100%" bgcolor="#FF9966">
  <tr>
    <td width="100%">
      <p align="center"><b>Our Page</b></td>
  </tr>
</table>

<table border="0" width="100%">
  <tr>
    <td width="97%" valign="top" align="left"><p align="right">more Text<br></p>
    </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="97%" valign="top" align="left">
    <b>Procedure</b>
    <p>This is where the text goes.</p>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>
</font>
</body>
</html>

Use this:

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="Program" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>Manual</title>
</head>

<body>

<table border="0" width="100%" bgcolor="#FF9966">
  <tr>
    <td width="100%"><p align="center"><b><font face="Arial">Our Page</font></b></td>
  </tr>
</table>

<table border="0" width="100%">
  <tr>
    <td width="97%" valign="top" align="left"><font face="Arial"><p align="right">more Text<br>
    </font></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="97%" valign="top" align="left"><font face="Arial"><b>Procedure</b> <p>This is
    where the text goes.</font></td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

The problem is the way Netscape handles the tables.  The font tag doesn't "carry" into the table.  put it before and after the text.
