HTML problem, text showing as bold and can't figure out why. Please help

I am sure it is something simple I am missing. I am inserting a table into a a paragraph and it looks fine but the text is bold and I cannot figure out why. It says it is matching user agent stylesheet and I don't know how to override this.

I am using Vivvo CMS.

Thanks

He had a Ph.D. in Economics and was an Associate Professor in Paris and Prague. Under his leadership, the secular PDKI supported the 1979 revolution. However, the party urged its followers to not take part in the referendum on whether an &ldquo;Islamic Republic&rdquo; should be established in Iran. Ghassemlou was elected to the Assembly of the Experts but was not permitted to take his seat.  In the early 1980s, Ghassemlou moved to the mountains shared by Iran and Iran that were under Kurdish control and eventually fled to Europe. <br />
  In 1989, he agreed to negotiate with representatives of the Islamic Republic in Vienna. The Kurdish delegation also included Abdullah Ghaderi-Azar (a member of the PDKI Central Committee) and Fazel Rassoul (an Iraqi professor who had acted as mediator). Tehran&rsquo;s delegation included Mohammed Jafar Sahraroudi, Hadji Moustafawi, and Amir Mansur Bozorgian. On the second day of negotiations, the three members of the Kurdish delegation were shot to death. Among the Islamic Republic representatives, only Sahraroudi was slightly injured. The killers have never been prosecuted.</p>

It's because you have it using <th> instead of <td>.

<th> = Table header so is designed to be a stronger font.
