Faces in ordinary text files...

Post by Paul Provo » Fri, 07 Apr 1995 04:00:00

Howdy all,

    I would like to use display faces (bold, italic, etc) in regular
text files, and optionnally print them.  Anybody knows of packages

I'm looking for arbitrary 'fontifying').

Any info appreciated...

an xterm, but this seems dumb, given that XEmacs is already opened.

So what's the easiest way for an ordinary user to write to a protected
