WordPress Editor Config to Stop Using Font Tag

Please could you change the default config so that the Font tag isn't used for styling, there is a option for the editor you use to switch to using spans instead but it isn't set to do that by default.

Could you provide the steps to reproduce the issue on a clean install?

I've tried "Select text color" and "Underline" buttons, and they produce <span> tags, not <font>.

My Content Manager keeps changing the Font Size which results in <font size="4"></font> being added.

Not sure what you mean by "Content Manager", but the default WordPress editor (Visual or Text) doesn't have the ability to change font size out of the box.

TinyMCE 4.0 replaces font tags with spans now by default.
