Ok, I've changed the default to LCD, and removed now unneeded changes to

     * Specifies a requested font smoothing type : gray or LCD.
     * The width of the bounding box is defined by the widest row.
     * Note: LCD mode doesn't apply in numerous cases, such as various
     * compositing modes, where effects are applied and very large glyphs.
     * @defaultValue FontSmoothingType.LCD
    private ObjectProperty<FontSmoothingType> fontSmoothingType;

    public final void setFontSmoothingType(FontSmoothingType value);
    public final FontSmoothingType getFontSmoothingType();
    public final ObjectProperty<FontSmoothingType>

     * Super-lazy instantiation pattern from Bill Pugh.
     * StyleableProperties is referenced no earlier
     * (and therefore loaded no earlier by the class loader)
     * than the moment that {@code impl_CSS_STYLEABLES()} is called.
     * @return          list of supported styleable properties
     * @treatAsPrivate  implementation detail
     * @deprecated      this is an internal API
     *                  that is not intended for use
     *                  and will be removed in the next version
    public static List<StyleableProperty> impl_CSS_STYLEABLES() {
        return WebView.StyleableProperties.STYLEABLES;

    public List<StyleableProperty> impl_getStyleableProperties() {
        return impl_CSS_STYLEABLES();
