I've got a situation here and a bit of guidance would be appreciated.

Here's the code
Code HTML4Strict:
<ol class="example">
	<li><span>This is an example</span></li>

Code CSS:
ol#example {
	font-size: 2em;
ol#example span {
	font-size: 1.3em;

So if I understand correctly, the span will display 1.3x the font of the parent element (ol).
I don't want that to happen on this occasion, I want it to just base itself on the default CSS reset and not the ol it's nested in.

What's the best way to go about it?
