So one of the concerns I have is the implication that "interesting"
If formatting characters were encoded to support these two styling
options, right away there would be calls to expand the set with:
7. font face
8. font size
9. font color
11. character spacing
12. line spacing
14. page size
15. all the other styling options that word processors provide
The proposed, simplified solution doesn't scale. It's the same as one of
the concerns I have with encoding localizable sentences as characters.
There aren't 20 or 50 or 100 sentences that people might want localized,
but crores of them.
