Thanks. Is there a global equivalent? The reason I ask is that KDE is doing
a substitution that I don't want it to do, not the corollary. I want it to
stop. Nothing in my current file seems to be triggering that.

Also, which app can I use to examine a font to see what the attributes are,
and perhaps edit them. I am thinking the decorative font that keeps jumping
in for Times New Roman has its attributes screwed up.
