I feel that the typeface used in the Ask Question textarea does not look good, and that the font size there is too small. How can I change them? Can they be changed network-wide by SE?

The text in the textarea gets resized for me in Chrome 13 when I use Ctrl-Plus or Ctrl-Mouse Wheel Up. – Pëkka Oct 21 '11 at 14:56

There is no way to change the fonts, font size, etc. which is embedded in the editor.

However, you can use a browser extension like Stylebot for Chrome or Stylish for Chrome and Firefox, or the dev tools for either of those browsers, to modify the CSS for your personal preferences.

To correct the size issue more quickly (It's currently a standard 12-point monospace font) hit CTRL-0 to zoom to the default level (in case you've zoomed out). If that's not sufficient, as Robert Harvey suggested in the comments, zoom in with CTRL-Mouse wheel up (or CTRL-+).
