      In principle, the 'guifont' option can be a comma-separated list of
      several fonts, and the first (leftmost) of them which is found will be
      used. However, IIUC Vim makes this choice globally, unlike HTML <font
      face=...> and CSS { font-family: ... } where the norm is IIUC to make
      the choice character by character.

      Maybe a change of how that option works in that respect ought to
      belong on Vim's todo list? Bram, what do you think?
