Can I just remove typeface info entirely?

I have a book that I purchased on Amazon that has a problem with the fonts. Namely, they are smaller than my preference, and bold instead of regular.

I removed the DRM using a method that is not relevant to this conversation and viewed the book in Calibre's internal reader. It shows the typeface as sans-serif (at least my Kindle ignored the "sans-serif" instruction), and smaller than usual and bold.

What I would like to do is try to convert the book from MOBI to MOBI, re-formatting it with no typeface instructions at all. I figure this would make it show up the same way as "regular" books. Can't seem to figure out how to go about this, though. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I was just posting to say that I'd found that tab.

For the benefit of future readers who might find this thread by search, in my particular case I also had to put font-weight into the "other CSS properties".
