changing the GTK theme will not change the highlighting in the editing
area but the theme of the various UI elements.  E.g. instead of being
integrated with the Windows theme it'll be gray.

I guess the issue is that the default theme uses the Windows API to draw
components, and then ignores the custom font set only for GTK (as it
would use the ones set for Windows).

"Sans" worked here as it's a virtual font meaning "the default
sans-serif font", but sure use whichever font you like.

But again, this doesn't work if using the GTK theme integrating with the
Windows theming system.
