asp menu need to change hyperlink size

i have a static/dynamic asp.net menu working which is mapped to a sitemapprovider. it works fine - the problem that i now have is the customer wants the menu (which are all hyperlinks to be a different size than all the other hyperlinks on the site.) All of the link tags are in the CSS file...

here is the element definition - i have tried changing the sizes for both dynamic and static  - but they are being overridden by the CSS... how / where do i put the size change in THE URL link?
 <asp:Menu ID="MastHeadMenu" runat="server" BackColor="#3379AE"
                                                    DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" DynamicHorizontalOffset="2"
                                                    Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White"
                                                    MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="2" Orientation="Horizontal"
                                                    Width="800px" DynamicMenuItemStyle-ItemSpacing="2px"
                                                    StaticSubMenuIndent="24px" >
                                                    <StaticMenuItemStyle HorizontalPadding="5px"  
                                                        VerticalPadding="0px" Width="180px" />
                                                    <DynamicMenuStyle BackColor="#006699" />
                                                    <DynamicMenuItemStyle VerticalPadding="1px"  HorizontalPadding="5px"   />

Set a CssClass and define it there.
You can put the "style" property in the <a> tag, like mentioned here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h4kete56.aspx

even if i set up the menu with a CSSClass - it still gets overridden by the a:link in the css...
so i need to put the font tag in the <a href> area, but don't know where that is - in the asp menu definition

t-max -- yes this is what i need to do, but where is the <a> tag in the asp.net menu... see code above.. the provider has
    Public Overrides Function BuildSiteMap() As SiteMapNode
        ' Only allow the Site Map to be created by a single thread
        SyncLock Me
            ' Attempt to get Root Node from Cache
            Dim context As HttpContext = HttpContext.Current
            _rootNode = CType(context.Cache("RootNode"), SiteMapNode)

            If _rootNode Is Nothing Then
                HttpContext.Current.Trace.Warn("Loading from database")

                ' Clear current Site Map

                ' Load the database data
                Dim tblSiteMap As DataTable = GetSiteMapFromDB()

                ' Get the root node
                _rootNode = GetRootNode(tblSiteMap)

                ' Build the child nodes
                BuildSiteMapRecurse(tblSiteMap, _rootNode)
I think you need the MenuItemStyle tag. Take a look to the example and properties here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.menuitemstyle.aspx
