I want the site to have a consistent look and feel so want to prevent authors from changing font, font color or font size.

Is there a way to either override their choices, or remove the option?

You can deactivate the buttons on tinymce and html-editor, but the user can than also create html-tags. Then is is also possible you filter the_content and replace the font-tags with empty fields.

try and add !important to all styles related to the post content that you want to restrict from being changed by the authors; this should force these styles even if somebody uses html tags with inline styles (unless they also use !important) http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/cascade.html#important-rules

Thanks Michael, good advice but unfortunately it didn't work out for me. I'm using a child theme based on Thematic. Will look into it further and hopefully find why it's not working. – Jules Jun 6 '11 at 4:17
