    - and its true on British & Canadian Macs too!! I wondered when someone
   was going to point out the beauty (ease) of Mac font selection for extra
   characters.
 
I don't think anyone's ever denied how easy it is to change font on a
Mac (or indeed on a PC running Windoze). The problem is, making such a
change doesn't usually leave behind any trace of _why_ you wanted to
change the font, and this information is frequently of much greater
importance than the actual font-change itself.
 
Em and en rules? IMHO no glyph should be more than three keystrokes or
mouseclicks away.
