The converter does it right by using styles.

See attached revised copy of the document, where I simply changed the
font of only one _"Conditional"_ style "OrgTableContents" from Times to
Arial. All the other "OrgTable" styles in the document are subordinate
and inherit the "OrgTableContents" styles automatically.

The only way to override Conditional Formatting, so you can do manual
(typewriter method) formatting, is to "Clear Formatting" first.

Hope this helps.
