Well, not really.  If one document has small fonts, which ought to be
"bumped up" temporarily, there's no easy way to do it; and any changes you
make in one window will have the same effect in others.  The GUI-based
OSes have a much nicer way of handling the problem of format-marked HTML,
a least for now.  (Of course, if people would stop using things like
<font> tags, the problem wouldn't be there in the first place.)

But now, this really _is_ OT.  Sorry.
