Make the default chat view font to render thicker on Windows
Added a font-weight property on the body style to enhance the default font weight (400) only on Windows, in order to improve the look of the chat view. If the font-weight is being defined in any other styles rules with higher priority, this default value will be overwritten. Test-Information: Tested with with windows 10 (qt5.4.2), Windows 10 (qt5.7), Ubuntu 16.04.2 (qt5.5) Change-Id: Iafd969cff487a907d136b9d2d8b393a90681216f
