Copied from your suggestions:

Under "Mail Settings" on the "General" tab, you should see something like this:

default font selector

This allows you to define whether your default text is bold, Italicized, which font is used*, font size (Small, Normal, Large, Huge), font color, and remove existing formatting.

I don't see DEFAULT FONT SELECTOR in my settings. Where could it be?

You need to enable GMail Labs and then go to Labs tab in Settings and enable Default Text Styling feature.
