Thanks a lot!

Actually, on -devel we discussed fonts a while ago and decided not to put any 
font family in the .css file. The reason is that each user has different 
preferences and different fonts he is used to for viewing web pages. Any 
other font will only be confusing / make the output look unusual. 
In particular, I like a sans-serif font for viewing web pages, because I think 
that makes it much easier to read on screen (the is no additional clutter 
coming from the serifs, that the eye must comprehend, so there is less 
distraction from the main contours of the glyphs), while e.g. John or Graham 
prefer a serif font. We have all configured our browser to show the sans / 
serif fonts as default fonts, so LilyPond's documentation should honor that 
setting, too.

Ah, okay, my browser does that already without explicit settings in the CSS.

Oops, yeah, that should be moved to the CSS, too.

I hope so, too, but thus far you are the first who proposes some design
