Your best way of doing this, Sandra would be to create
classes for the options- this way iof you want to re-use a
particular styling you don't have to re-type it all. To get
a font-family inside each option just use font-family: with
that option. So if your class for the first option was

.optionfirststyle {
    font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    color: red;
    background-color: blue;

and create all your different options' styles in that way.
Also, if specifying a font with a space in the name make
sure that you always enclose it in double quotation marks,
eg: "Comic Sans MS".
