to add to the confusion, i've noticed that i can no longer print out pdf
files -- the courier style fonts are so large that they run over the
following characters when interspersed with other fonts on a single
line.  i >think< i can say that the same happens in web pages that i
print out.

i also notice in firefox in fc3 that i regularly have to look at a word
to determine if i'm seeing a r n sequence or a m character.  this didn't
happen in fc2.
