Such things don't just happen.  I actually made up my own italics version of
misc-fixed-semicondensed since it didn't exist.  Nowadays, it comes
standard so I ditched my home-grown font.

I don't actually understand what that means.  Can you show an example?

Well, I could say that making comments less legible forces one to read them
slowly so one better understands them ;-)
