I can't set a different font in the nav because the body{} and/or maincontent{} seems to be preventing it.

Code:
body 		{	background-color:  #0A1794;
	   		background: url(images/swirl.png) fixed;
			max-width:1200px;
			min-width:400px;
			font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
    		 	font-size:16px;
      		 	line-height:106%;
			color: #fff;
			margin: 0 auto;
			margin-top:20px;
			margin-right:.83%; /* 10 px */
			margin-left: .83%; /* 10 px */
}

#maincontent{	float:right;
			width:880px;
			position:relative;
			margin-left: 26.26%; /* 320px based on 880px maincontent*/
}

#nav 		{list-style: none;
			padding-left:0%;
			font-family: "resiling";
			line-height: 100%;
			color:#FFF;  						/* has no effect */
			font-size:190%; margin:0 0 5px;  	/* this allows the font to be flush left */
			src: url(/fonts/".eot");
			src: local('☺'),
    		 url("resiling.woff") format("woff"),
    		 url("resiling.otf") format("opentype"),
    		 url("resiling.svg#grablau") format("svg");
}
I read SteveD's reply a few messages up regarding inheritance but I'm unable to correct it.

Thanks . . . Rick
