first of all thanks for all the excellent comments. It seems there are
even more things I don't know about professional typesetting than I had
thought ;).

Some replies/comments from my side:

I've replaced the font for the quote on the front page by the original
one, with the exception of "TeX" which is set in standard Latin Modern.
I chose that Chancery font because I think it looks somewhat better -
more "handwritten" - than the normal Latin Modern. I guess it's a matter
of taste...

The normal text should use English quoting everywhere. IIRC, Guillemets
are used only in the regexp section to delimit text that is to be input
into a textbox. With normal quotes, it would be too easy to mistake it
for a quotation mark character, at least during casual reading, IMO. If
guillemets are used anywhere else it would be wrong.

That's a very good question. It seems to originate in the interaction
between the makeindex and fncychap packages, though I have no idea where
the problem lies exactly. Does anyone else on this list have a suggestion?
