I just noticed that, when I look at the hover dialog that shows my recent rep changes, some of the links look different than the others:


Looking at the source in Firebug reveals why: some of the links (the +2 edits) point to questions and have the class question-hyperlink, while the others point to answers and have the class answer-hyperlink. In the site CSS, the former class is styled as:

font-family: "Segoe UI","Lucida Grande","Lucida Sans Unicode","Lucida Sans","DejaVu Sans","Bitstream Vera Sans","Liberation Sans",Verdana,"Verdana Ref",sans serif;

whereas the latter inherits the default font family specified for the body tag:

font-family: 'Helvetica Neue',Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;

IMO, this looks silly and inconsistent. Shouldn't the answer links be given the same font as the question links, or shouldn't the fonts just be overridden for the profile popup?
