Everybody + 1.

If it works really well, use the Export mechanism. More buttons if you can
do at save time (after changing things), no thanks.

C2 with same font size, so you get the idea about how big a font is (damn
font sizes... there could be a standard, no?).

I see you point, another C2b, "The Gimp" with same pixel size.

Most people + 1.
