sorry, but I do not have an answer, but I, personally, consider this  
a bug!

 From the docs about "textfont":
If the chunk contains more than one font, the chunk's textFont  
property reports "mixed".

But even if the textfont is identical and only the styles are "mixed"  
I get
put the textfont of line 1 of fld 1 -> "mixed

Or am I missing something obvious?
