I think that the filebrowser (and every other tool in Interlisp-D) should come up using DEFAULTFONT and the other fonts in FONTPROFILE. If users want to customize their fontset, then we should still go thru the indirection of FONTPROFILE. First, that will allow us to change fontsets gracefully, e.g., by picking a different font profile for the demo for bigger fonts, and leads to a far more consistent style. It means that we won''t have all these funny fonts wired in if we want to switch to the NS fonts and character sets, etc.'
Filebrowser reminded me of this, but there are some other offenders around too (e.g., Lafite, the menu fonts in TEdit, etc).'
