Allow the font face, size, colour & attributes (bold, italic, underline, strikethrough) to be changed
radders has provided a patch, which should enable text markup code, which was already in the source, but disabled (someone has started working on a xhtml support maybe in the past). This is not a XHTML XEP support. But maybe it can be a temporary solution until this XEP is implemented. Personally i'm not able to compile this patch in Netbeans. Somebody else has to test this.
The main reason I would want to "change the font" is to get better Unicode "coverage".
For example, the "Deja Vu" fonts have good coverage in both monospace and proportional fonts.
In other words, there are more and more characters (glyphs... codepoints) in Unicode these days, and Spark represents many characters as a square block.
I also submitted a direct request regarding Unicode coverage, but it is marked "Unanswered".
Patches do not apply fully to the source. Needs updating for the current source.
Nvm... re-attached patches from forum
Additional patch for groupchat
