Ticker description doesn't format according to template

I am running Xibo 1.7.4 on a ubuntu server and running the display on a windows 7 machine. I am using a ticker to run RSS feeds, as well as display a data set. I am able to use the template to format everything except for the description, which no matter how I treat the tag (changing font size, color, etc), the description shows in small black font. Am I missing something?

Is the font you are trying to use also on the Windows 7 machine?

Its the same format and font as I’ve treated the other tags, and they work.
Its just the description tag seems unaffected.
