That's the way I really like it. It is annoying how fonts are
'supported' by Symbolics. Starting back in the old days with Release
4.x, where I even had to provide a reader macro for the epsilon
escape to allow loading of source files written with multiple fonts.
For the lisp machines this default predates the founding of Symbolics by
a couple of years at least. Even then there was a history of PDP-10
text formatters using as a font-shift character.
This is not a comment on the dubious taste of multiple fonts in source
code, but merely a lifting of the blame.
