Moderators can edit the on-topic help page. (It's the only help page we can edit.)

As you can see, that page shows up as sans-serif:

However when editing the post preview uses our standard serif formatting we see on posts:

My expectation is the font would be sans-serif in the preview if it's sans-serif on the page.

This in particular gives some misleading impressions about what the heading formatting's going to look like. Left: nice and bold. Right: not.

    \$\begingroup\$ It looks like it's pulling in the exact same styling for the preview window as for the post editing pages. It's not just the serifs but also the link underlines, size... etc. \$\endgroup\$
