Has anyone written, or know of, an appropriate Common Lisp readtable
definition that will ignore font change characters in a Lisp source file?
For example the Symbolics Styled-Lisp facility inserts a lot
of font changes. Note that the control-F can be followed not only by
a single character, but sometimes by a list or other complex expression.
I don't think you could do it with a readtable. It is acceptable to put a
font shift in the middle of a token. For example, it is acceptable to have
the following tokens in a lisp file, none of which can be handled by a reader
"A Îµ2quotedÎµ0 string"
