At the moment styles in CKEditor work in a way that external style has to match dropdown style. Styles created by MS Word look like this:

<p><span style="font-size:36.0pt"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;"><span style="color:red">Test text</span></span></span></p>

while styles created by CKEditor like this:

<p><span style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif"><span style="font-size:36px"><span style="color:#ff0000">Test</span></span></span></p>

As you can see they don't match.
