        And dont-knows to the last three.  At least I'm beginning to
        understand some of the issues, thanks Giorgos.  --Another
        point-of-interest is when I tried to creat a blue italix font
        from the New Century SchoolBook class.  GIMP couldn't do it at 
        98pt; it was probably the default of 18pt/px.  

        Back to the drawing/image widget.
