The handling of small HTML fonts is probably best handled using the 
minimum font size setting in the Viewer preferences pane.

Some things are probably possible using `!important` for the CSS 
definitions. (But nothing is ever easy when dealing with HTML in emails 
:) )

specifying colors in CSS to be used in dark mode. This is supported in 
the Safari Technology Preview (which is why I'm currently postponing 
looking into it).
