I'm using the standard Wordpress theme (WordPress Default 1.6 by Michael Heilemann).

The standard font for my articles is a sans-serif font.

I'd like to display, for a sentence only, a serif font (Times for instance).

I didn't find a way to do this. Is it possible ?

This is not really a WordPress question but I'll answer it anyway. The first thing you need to know is CSS is your friend. You'll want to do something like this:

In style.css
.serif-class {font-family: "Times", "Times New Roman", serif;}

Then using the html view inside of your post:
<span class="serif-class"> This is an important sentence </span>
