Firebug may be your friend. It's a firefox extension that will tell you
almost everything you ever wanted to know about the currently rendered
page (and certainly some things you did not want to know), including the
CSS that applies to a certain element.
The font information you glean from that can be fed to fc-match, which
will tell you what font your system will select when, for example,
'Arial' is called for.
