(As far as I can tell this didn't go through when I sent it before.)
I need to modify what I wrote before, quoted below.
The text after the special-font (Courier) lines _does_ get set to
whatever the new default or owner's font is -- UNLESS it (the lines
without a specified contains any text _style_ changes. A bit in bold,
or marked as a link, interrupts the transformation, and any text
after that is in the old, pre-change default font.
How should I get around this? I can imagine searching each card,
putting any special-format text into temporary variables, setting the
style of everything to Plain, changing the font, then
reformatting . . . a nightmare. At the moment, nothing better is
occurring to me.
