[REBOL] Re: Multiple Fonts in area

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
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?
