Font standards

E16 themes have many choices when it comes to font setup.

X Font (normal/multibyte)
Fnlib
TrueType

Pango
Xft

In order for a theme to be functional on as many distributions as possible, which choice would be the most effective? Should we limit the themes here to a standard set (possibly UTF8) for the best support? If so which ones would be good candidates?

Re: Font alias suggestion

I think it depends on how you expect to be able to change your theme fonts.

With the current fonts.cfg it is possible to change the font in specific theme elements, e.g. the border or the menu.

With your suggestion you would change e.g. all things normally having bold-medium font to something else.

I think the usual user questions have been like "the border/menu font is too small, how do I change it?".

Hmm... I think I like my suggestion best :)
