There's a bug report about this in Bugzilla, but it wasn't verified as a 
real bug the last time I looked. RR says that since the engine supports 
styled text, the current behavior is appropriate. I'd like it better if 
plain text stayed that way, but I can see there might be a problem 
because of font inheritance. If you put plain text into a field and it 
inherits the system font, for example, should that text now be 
considered styled text or not?
