Admin Panel CSS use Bitstream Vera Sans before utf-8/non latin-1 friendly fonts

In global.css for the admin panel there is:

body { margin:0; padding:0; font-size:12px; font-family:"Lucida Grande","Bitstream Vera Sans",Verdana,Arial,sans-serif; color:#333; background:#fff; }

"Bitstream Vera Sans" isn't utf-8 or non latin-1 friendly font - in my case i don't have "Lucida Grande" and "Bitstream Vera Sans" doesn't display Polish special chars properly.

I propose:

font-family:"Lucida Grande","DejaVu Sans", Verdana, Arial, "Bitstream Vera Sans",sans-serif;

Where "DejaVu Sans" is the successor of Bitstream Vera fonts and supports more non-latin-1 chars. (and some linux distributions will use it by default)

(In [3644]) Fixed #2570 -- Added 'DejaVu Sans' to admin global.css, because it is more utf-8 friendly than Bitstream. Thanks for the patch, riklaunim@…
