[REBOL] Re: Multiple Fonts in area

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 23-Oct-2002 11:51

Hi Louis, << I want to print to screen (and later to paper) a line of Greek text with a line of English text under it, but in the same View area, like this: This is a line of Greek text. This is a line of English text. This is a second line of Greek text. This is a second line of English text.
You can't use a different font, but that doesn't mean you can't use a different language. :) What would limit you, in using a single AREA face, is any special characters you need for Greek that might only be available in a particular font. That said, often what you see in applications is not what it appears. For instance, MS Excel (V3 I think) was a complex spreadsheet with lots of UI widgetry, cells, buttons, and what-not. In actuality, there were only three windows (in the window handle sense) in use. Everything was as illusion, managed by complex code. So, do you really need to use a single AREA face, or can you use multiple FIELD faces, with no borders or space between them, or some other "trick", to simulate it and work around its limitations? --Gregg
