Seeing as Dreamweaver is being used to produce the site, open your template
files, go to the Commands Menu > Clean Up HTML... and set the "Combine
nested <font> tags where possible" option.

Now a question for the other DW gurus: Is there any way to find every
instance of an image in a site, and add an ALT tag to it (if necessary), eg
set all the spacer.gif's alt tags to "Spacer Image"?
