        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    Now, problems arise when characters *do* have explicit character-level
    formatting that is visually indistinguishable from the base paragraph
    font. Such text *will* carry the font with it when copied and pasted,
    giving the user the feeling of unpredictability and not being in

If it is no worse in Emacs than it is in the other word processors
people are used to, we can live with it.
