Why not add a seconf font class and define a different size to it?
  Body, table, tr, td   {
        FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial', 'Helvetica', sans-serif;
        FONT-SIZE: 10pt;
font.biggerfont { FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial', 'Helvetica', sans-serif;
                    FONT-SIZE: 12pt;

<font class="biggerfont">text</font>
