CSS To Undo Font Family

This is a quick note about how to reset the font being applied to a particular CSS selector. I always forget about this, so I wanted to post my answer so I'll remember it.
Reset CSS Font-Family Declaration
The code is very easy. The only prerequisite is that you have defined the font-family you actually want to use at a higher level (or a less-specific CSS rule).
- font-family: inherit;
Best Practice: Define a Font on the Body Tag
If you define a font-family for your body tag, then any rule can be overridden and set back to the original font declaration using the inherit command. If you use your font-family tags sparingly, then the inherit command will be a useful tool for minimizing CSS coding to undo other CSS rules.
