Maintaining original font sizes

Is there a way when using Calibre to convert other file formats to Sony's .lrf format, to keep the different font sizes found in the original in the output file, so that reference numbers, quoted passages and so forth, maintain their original size, whether smaller or larger? And is there a way to maintain the wider margins in, say, indented quoted passages? I can output files with Calibre most times, but everything is the same size and indent.

When I've been converting - say, from mobipocket or lit or epub to lrf - I've been setting the font sizes and so forth. Is that the wrong thing to do? Should I just be leaving those blank?

If you set the base font size to zero, calibre wont perform any font size manipulation, if you set it to non zero it will rescale fonts proportinally
