All this makes sense, except the regression.  It used to work. The code
that made it work has been either removed or broken. Is this not a bug? I
don't want to have to restrict my choice of fonts when code exists/existed
to seamlessly give me what I used to have. Surely this is regressing many
documents around the world.
