How to retain font style of EPUB to MOBI

How do I choose a specific font style? It seems like when I convert an Epub to MOBI, it's always in a serif font, probably Times New Romans.

You can't get very specific, the Kindle doesn't allow specific fonts. I believe you can only choose between serif, sans-serif, and monospaced. Use extra css under look and feel:
Code:
body{font-family: sans-serif}

Thanks for the response.

You said not in Kindle, so can I specify a font in Epub? If so, how?
