Thanks. I tried this with family="Arial", family="Times",
family="serif", family="sans", family="Verdana", and family="mono",
and they all come out as bold.
I guess if this doesn't happen on other systems, then is must be a
problem with my R or system setup. Unfortunately I don't have another
system to try this out on.
The italic versions of Arial, Time, and Verdana are all available,
according to Font Book.
Have you any suggestions as to how I could try and find out what is
going on here? Can I activate some sort of debugging or verbose mode
