Are exactly the same: both are Consolas, Regular, 9.

The line spacing in the dialogs (not in the editor area!) are different and 
vice versa!!!
The Kate dialog has smaller line spacing than the one in Kate! 
And the difference is significant. I tuned the window size to be equal. And 
now, the kdevelop font size window shows font size lines from 4 to 16 (13 
lines) while the Kate size window contains only 4 to 13 (10 lines). I 
underline that I tuned the windows sizes equally...

Milian, do you think this is something local in my installation?
