That I knew.  But finding the right knob to turn is something different ;).
Right.  For others that might want to change this: change it in
/usr/local/rt3/share/html/NoAuth/webrt.css (or /opt if you're using something
other then FreeBSD) and change the value to:

SPAN.message {
        font-size: 100%;
        font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;

the monospace is the default font in case your client does not support Courer
New.  According to our CSS person monospace is the standardized font for that
