I'm not too sure what to do about this.  I can add a translation of "SansSerif" to "sans-serif", but font names have little compatibility across platforms beyond that.  Do you have any ideas?  Does anyone know what SPSS does here?

The font name "SansSerif" is copied verbatim from the table looks .stt file to the html style attributes and is ignored by browsers. Changing "SansSerif" to "sans-serif" in the .stt file solves the problem but breaks compatibility.
PDF output seems unaffected.
