      Are you using a "Windows gvim" (running on your local machine) or a
      "Unix gvim" (running on the remote server)? I suspect the latter. They
      won't accept the same format for the 'guifont' option: on Unix/Linux
      versions of gvim there are four possible incompatible formats for
      'guifont', all different from the Windows format, and each gvim accepts
      only one of these formats; some Unix/Linux versions don't even accept
      ":set gfn=*". See http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Setting_the_font_in_the_GUI
      for details.

      It is impossible to travel faster than light, and certainly not
      desirable, as one's hat keeps blowing off.
