> The current default Terra Theme font is "Verdana 11".  While this is a nice-looking font,
it is not available (by default) on platforms other than Windows, and it does not support
a wide range of the Unicode character set (typically not much outside the Latin-1 range).
 This is a problem for applications needing to routinely handle Japanese, Korean, Chinese,
etc. characters in the GUI.
> The proposal would be to change the default theme font to either "DIALOG 12" or maybe
"SANS_SERIF 12" in order to take advantage of the increased character set coverage in these
"logical" fonts.
> Since this is a big visual change, it is not clear if it should go into 2.0.5 or not.
