Thanks Alen,

I linked that page myself in response to the OP looking for CSS help. I think the GTK Inspector will be a big help, especially if it is interactive.

My initial suspicion (as with all things CSS and before further investigation into the button widget) is that another CSS rule is overriding your font choice—or maybe GTK doesn’t like Comic Sans :)

Note that the above link you provided on mentions that each rule is applied to a node in the widget’s tree. It’s possible there is a child node something like [button > label] which has a font rule that is more specific than simply [button].
