Can I avoid specifying a font in an RTF header?

I made the Arial font the only font, but the header appears to be Roman.
I have specified the right margin for the \ql body of the document, but I do NOT want to use that in the header so I \pard\qc the header (see below).

Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey
