 > Now that I am clearly defeated on the issue and Bitstream Vera Sans is
 higher in the list, why not list DejaVu Sans one place ahead of Bitstream
 Vera Sans? DejaVu Sans is a font preinstalled on most Linux distributions
 which is visually the same as Vera, except it contains many more glyphs,
 which is useful for internationalisation.
 Well, I think that could be done. After all, the more fonts it can fall
 back to the better. But, I don't think that addresses the issue of Lucida
 Grande. Adding DejaVu Sans to the list one place ahead of Bitstream Vera
 Sans still leaves Lucida Grande as the first in the list and Lucida Grande
 is the problem here, I think.
