<div style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: 14 px;">
Yup. That is exactly the kind of thing a div is supposed to do. Except that
#1 put the styles in a CSS, not inline. Do this even if it only happens to occur once. You'll reuse the style sooner or later. And inline styles render slower than ones declared ahead of time. Insert long boring technical disquisition here.
#2 if you must name a font, name more than one --there's an excellent site about font stack building if you need ready-made information-- and include a generic font-family at the end. Here it would be "serif". That is probably the user's default anyway, but let's be consistent.
#3 when you said "font-size: 14px" you of course meant "font-size: medium" or "font-size: 100%" or "font-size: inherit" or similar. DIDN'T YOU? Ahem. Well, it's possible you thought you meant "font-size: 110%" or "font-size: large" presuming a base size of 12pt. But the Times families all read fairly small; I for one would not be comfortable with 12pt body type. (My browsers are currently set for 15pt Palatino. Admittedly I am not 19 years old and do not have 20-20 vision.)
