Package: skencil
Version: 0.6.17-7
Severity: normal

When a font is used to display its own name,
things can get illegible.    Symbol fonts are an obvious
problem, as are IPA (phonetic) fonts (the tipa package)
and Chinese/Japanese.  Wingdings, too.

Ideally, the font name should be displayed in a default
font, and then a small sample of text should be displayed
in the font itself.
