Cool, Ian!

On the topic of X11 fonts I have one issue: if you use, say, Helvetica
as the flaps font, the texts are cropped. Is there an easy fix to that?

I've been through ugly code in order to get the Apple fonts GC'ed away,

"necessary for NewYork and Comic"
StrikeFont allInstances do: [:font |
     (font name beginsWith: 'Comic') ifTrue: [
		(Smalltalk pointersTo: font) do: [:each |
			(each respondsTo: #font:) ifTrue: [
				each font: (StrikeFont familyName: 'Helvetica' size: 12)]]]]

TextStyle allInstances do: [:style |
	(style name beginsWith: 'a TextStyle NewYork') ifTrue: [
		(Smalltalk pointersTo: style) do: [:each |
			(each respondsTo: #setTextStyle:) ifTrue: [
				each setTextStyle: (TextStyle default)]]]]

The end result wasn't perfect, and I might have forgotten to keep a log
on some tweaks, but the end result was that the Apple fonts could be
GC'ed. And probably I got it all wrong, too (I'm a complete nitwit in
the area of Smalltalk GUI's), but I thought I'd post my code anyway -
hopefuly someone comes up with something cleaner ;-). Anyway, the code
above was purely meant to see whether I could remove the Apple fonts,
treat it as such ;-)
