Right out of the box, you cannot change the font of the chat. However, I did some searches on potential solutions, and I found this:

http://www.l4dmaps.com/details.php?file=15715 - Seems like you can make those adjustments and get the font from L4D1, which also means you might be able to configure it further.

    it is a mod which uses the l4d typeface for l4d2, and requires a minor autoexec.cfg edit to finalize the install (to match resolution). If the link goes dead, then the solution does too.
