how to overwrite a font property on <li>
I only want <li> to stay the same, not the other text
so h1 is bigger
   
and you cant change this line:
<li><font size="2">I want this font to be 12px</font></li>



reason:
I am working with alot of copy paste text and want the all the fonts to be the same

why can't you change it?
the <font ...  tag is deprecated
anyhow, try this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
      <head>
      <title>...</title>
      

      <style>
      /**/
      .test ul {
      font-size:12px;
      color: #cc0000;
      }
      .test li {
      font-size:12px;
      color: #cc0000;
      }
      .test font {
      font-size:12px;
      color: #cc0000;
      }
      </style>      
      </head>
      <body>
      <div class='test'>
      <ul>
      <li><font size="1">I want this font to be 12px</font></li>
      <li><font size="1">I want this font to be 12px</font></li>
      <li style="font-size:12px;">I want this font to be 12px</li>
      </ul>
      </div>
      <ul>
      <li><font size="1">I want this font to be 12px</font></li>
      <li><font size="1">I want this font to be 12px</font></li>
      <li style="font-size:12px;">I want this font to be 12px</li>
      </ul>
      
      </body>
</html>

But you have to change that line because the 'font' tag overrides the setting for the 'li'.

You're probably not going to get far. The last style the browser sees, wins, so even f you find a selector or hack that works in some browsers it will still just work with some browsers.

Have you considered find and replace? I've used find and replace on massive sites (30,000+ pages) with good results. You should strip out those <font> tags anyway. They're deprecated.

Make sure you make a backup first. If something goes wrong you can always roll back. I usually make a copy and work on that. When I'm satisfied everything is proper, I swap.
