H2s in admin backend should have a specific font specified, for consistency

The H2s that are displayed as the title for WP admin pages don't have a specific font specified. All the CSS says is that it should use a 'serif' font.

This is normally not a problem; on Windows (and Mac OS X, I presume) it defaults to Times New Roman, which looks close enough to the rest of the fonts.

However, on most Linux distributions, the default serif font is Bitstream Vera Serif, which is an ugly blocky serif font, and having that font alongside all the other Microsoft fonts that are explicitly included in the CSS makes it look not too pleasant.

Attached is a patch to specify that it uses the Georgia font (same as the blog title displayed at the top), which makes it consistent with all the other {{{font-family}} declarations in CSS.
