Lattelekom appeals price comparison decision

Lattelekom has appealed to the Administrative Court a decision of the Competition Council condemning advertisments published earlier this year comparing the price of calls on Tele2's mobile network with calls on its own fixed network.
The Competition Council ruled that voice calls on different networks were not a proper basis for price-comparitive advertising. Lattelekom maintains that most telecommunications users have access to both fixed and mobile phones and may be legitimately informed that making fixed-network calls, when available, is cheaper.
Lattelekom has yet to decide on whether it will appeal a similar Competition Council decision with regard to its ads comparing using a mobile phone when a fixed line is available to riding a cow or eating with a shovel. Once again, the complaint was filed by Tele2, which seems to be making litigation one of its core businesses (don't worry, at Lattelekom, it's reorganization :) ).
Sorry, no key-words boldfaced in this post, left my Powerbook with its Firefox browser home with the 9 year old.

Looks like You are posting news using some WYSIWYG editor. This post looks better than others because there are no [span] tag with the font mentioned. So, in other words I wanted to say that Blogger style sheets has already predefined styles that looks OK if you do not specificly define them using Your tool.

The problem is that this editor puts only one font name and no alternative, so by the rules of CSS power browser tries to show the content using this font if it does not have one it shows default. On my system there is no Lucida font and i see those posts in ugly Times New Roman, that is my default font.

My suggestion is - if You use this editor do not specify the font name, bold, italics or whatever is fine.
