           Summary: WebKit GTK+ should use Font info from GtkStyle, and
                    aliases, by default
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: dobey at wayofthemonkey.com

WebKit currently has some odd defaults in the GTK+ port for font names and
sizes. This patch changes the default font setting code to use the user's
preferred application font which is accessible through the GtkStyle object. It
also changes the default minimum size to 7, as 5 is a bit insanely small
(coming from someone who uses insanely small fonts by default), and changes the
default names to use the Sans/Monospace/Serif aliases, rather than the MS Core
Font names. This let's the best suitable font be chosen by default from
fontconfig, for monospace/serif/sans fonts, with the standard font being set to
the user's theme font. This also allows a user to theme the WebKit widget's
font specifically, through the gtkrc.
