there is a case for speical use of fonts in SAs now. Fonts are handled at 
system level very differnetly than in past. MS will likely do same too at some 
point. Font and GUIs has had a strang and strained relastionships for over 
30yrs... ;-) Opentype may with rich unicode finally provide the holy 
grail..maybe....but politics in tech has killed many a keen solution too :( the achilles heal 
of write once and deploy many is Fonts.
