Aha, that makes perfect sense, thank you!
I'm currently on OSX using Wing as my IDE. When I ran this code inside a
host application, it worked fine (because it changes the default font).
I will verify that though before moving on. Text encoding/decoding
always confuses me (I hardly have to deal with it, so there is no
routine) and I want to get it right this time.
