This seems to be a part of a more general bug / feature related to changing the
style and size of the fonts in the inspector.

Still, I am convinced that all the UI fragments that correspond to the user's
source code should be rendered as in IDE (i.e. monospace). I think that
monospace migration of the DOM itself was received fairly well. And I don't see
a big difference between the dom and the styles. Except for styles' UI is
cluttered. We have an experiment that we will land shortly that removes some
clutter: https://bug-36747-attachments.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=51948. We
would like to play with it in nightlies / dev channel before it hits the user.

Nikita, it is nice to see you contributing patches! Besides Joe's comments, my
friendly advice would be to start with declaring your intentions in the bug
comments and see how people react. In this case, it seems to be a significant
ui change that needs to be discussed either in the bug or on the IRC (just as
the serif -> monospace move was). After that, when everyone is happy, you
submit patches and land things. UI is somewhat sensitive area for us!
