Include font weights where applicable

There's an awkward disconnect between designers and coders when working with fonts.

Designers see and understand the "names" of weights, while coders writing CSS only care about the weight number.

Lunacy's CSS code view of course only includes the weight number. There's often need to convert back and forth. I'm sometimes asked impromptu what font weight I used somewhere so I'll respond with the weight name, but the coder wants the number and I'm not totally sure what the number is unless I cross reference it and verify.

Non-variable type fonts almost never have a full 100-900 weight range so knowing which weights are available is useful, too. Most font families follow the conventional pattern, but then there's cases like Knockout, which has 32 weights.

So, what if the weight dropdown listed the weight number, too?
