#294 Custom CSS font stacks

CSS Editor (6)

It would be great to be able to define custom font stacks, that would make the work easier when applying CSS rules.

Actually this feature is partially implemented: when going into the menu "Format > Font", three font stacks are predefined: "Helvetica, Arial", Times, Courier. However, I couldn't find any way to edit those stacks, and to add my custom stacks to the list. If I open CSS editor tool, I can create a custom font stack for a specific css rule, but there seems to be no way to bring my custom font stack into the main Font menu.

A bit of context: I was recently instructing a end-user how to make little changes to his HTML newsletter, and KompoZer was perfect for that. However, in order to support mail clients / webmail providers, when defining fonts in a html newsletter we unfortunately need to apply the font-family style to nearly each <p>, so a quick way to apply a pre-defined CSS font stack is mandatory. Of course, for a normal website, that wouldn't be such a big issue, since we normally don't need to re-define fonts over and over. But still, I'm sure it would be welcomed by many users and should be a generic feature.

Specially in scenarios where a skilled person has pre-build a site layout, and a novice user is making changes in KompoZer, the use of such pre-defined stacks would be a great win.

If the feature exists, please let me know, and consider making it more easy to find :)

Thanks for your work, and for giving the world a simple, much-needed open-source HTML editor!

Version/OS: KompoZer 0.8b3, OSX 10.6
