RE: [XaraXtreme-dev] Current/default font

Er, so as I understand it, Alex and me came agreed with your (Neil)
original proposal (and I thought what we all agreed around the table),
and now you agree with Martin's new proposal instead.
Er, I'm confused.

	Yes I think Martin's right that we shouldn't change the default
font. So please go ahead and change the current font only and then this
can be closed I think. It's changing the current font that will solve
the main problem here.

	I can't recall the exact ins and outs of the debate now, but I
do know this was discussed around the table here with the Phil, Alex,
Gerry etc (one of the few times we were physically in the same location)
and that Neil's suggested solution (i.e. 1st message in the bug report)
was the preferred conclusion at the time.
	This still stops the Arial missing message appearing (except
when it's used and really missing). So is there a downside with this

	Yes. I prefer the strategy described by Neil in the original bug
