On the Linux version of Slimboat, there is insufficient control over the fonts. I would like to be able to set the generic font-families for page rendering so that when the page calls for a generic "sans-serif" the browser won't simply grab the first thing in my system fonts. I would like the same preset choices for serif and monospace. I've tried to find a way to code a user CSS file for this, but I can't get Slimbrowser to honor it.

Please note that the strict orthodox method is to allow the browser to determine generic font faces for the font-family defintions. When I visit such pages, I want Slimbrowser to display the fonts I choose. Complicating things is that in order to use certain other applications in Linux, I am forced to enable display of older bit-mapped fonts with generic names, and these are what Slimboat is grabbing. I know of no way to change how the system displays fonts to get around this issue.

Sorry, that was Slimboat, of course.
