I'm trying to figure out Custom CSS. Admittedly, I know almost nothing about CSS and never had any experience with it.

What I'm trying to do is change the font face for my posts.

I figured something like
.idno-body p {
    font-family: "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
would do it, since it worked for font size, but I must be doing something wrong, as browser ignores it with "unknown property name" for font-family.

Is there anything I can read to get a better idea of how to customize things?

I can see a strange '' symbol on the same line as 'font-family', which might be a copy paste 
artifact, but if it is really there in your CSS it might hurt.

Looks like ar tifact, I don't see it.
Anyway, even simplifying it to "font-family: Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;" doesnt' work either. Same old unknown property.

Rewriting the CSS by hand helped, should have been some copy-paste artifacts. Thanks to Georg for pointing out.

I’ve had copy and pasting bite me in the ass a few times. I find it best to retype to avoid this type of issue.
