Can you post the code displaying the content on the frontend, if you have links leading their too that would be a great help. As it currently stands your question simply doesn't have enough information to give an answer to – Tom J Nowell Jan 15 '13 at 12:18

If it is editor mode specific, then make a CSS file named: editor-style.css and then add the following code into functions.php within PHP tags:

// This theme styles the visual editor with editor-style.css to match the theme style.

Now put some CSS code to match the site's CSS into the editor.

Found the soulution.

It was in the Css-reset

font: inherit; should be removed.

Then it will apply in wp-admin.
