;;In CLIM 2.0, you can do this:
;; (setf (text-style-mapping <port> <text-style>) <font>)
;;to get any mapping you want. You can define new text style attributes,
;;too, if you want. You can also define "device fonts".
;;CLIM 1.1 has these facilities, but they are harder to use.
aahhh, this is very nice. I looked, and the appearance is:
(text-style-mapping <x-display-device> NIL <clim-text-style> <window>)
which is OK with me. I haven't tried to SETF this, but if that
The SETFer won't work in CLIM 1.1, it's something like
ADD-TEXT-STYLE-MAPPING (or something like that).
(i found this by tracing clim::text-style-mapping, for those who want
to see for themselves)
or course that still leaves the Q of scaling the text, but it means
that I can use most any font I can get to...which at the moment isn't
really all that many (perhaps 6-8 typefaces, with 10-20 fonts each).
