Bug Description

In Raring any QtWebKit-based browser displays "font-family: monospace" blocks using non-monospace font. I can reproduce this using pure 13.04 live image and Qupzilla.

A screenshot: https://ubuntuone.com/6JmFjyEcqrxkSZ8CDS31N1.

A minimal test case: https://gist.github.com/mitya57/5312601.

Importance High because it breaks a lot of web sites and other apps, such as ReText.

This didn't happen with Quantal's QtWebKit 2.2 and does not happen with Qt 5.

I'm going to add a work-around for this bug to ReText (until that's properly resolved upstream).

This bug was fixed in the package retext - 4.0.1-2

---------------
retext (4.0.1-2) experimental; urgency=low

  * debian/rules: use lrelease-qt4 instead of lrelease.
  * Build qm files directly in locale, and add locale/*qm to
    extend-diff-ignore.
  * Added Brazilian Portuguese translation (from Transifex).
  * Drop the reStructuredText mime file, instead recommend
    docutils-common (>= 0.10-3~) which ships it now.
  * debian/patches/git_fix_monospace_fonts.patch: work-around
    monospace fonts not working with QtWebKit 2.3 (LP: #1165378).
