Well, just wanting to pick one that looked nice for the site - some of the themes specify a font, but the default Bootstrap and the Classic theme don't, so maybe this one shouldn't either - I pushed up a new version with no font specified (aside from monospace for code), so it'll just whatever default they have set.

Why do you even want to specify a font for body text?

The user already has one favorite serif font, one favorite sans-serif
font, and one favorite monospaced font, and has them configured in
their browser preferences. Any change from that will lead to a
decrease in legibility for that particular user.

(Overriding fonts for headings is okay. But very sparingly.)
