Btw on Linux and other X11-based systems, you should distinguish between 
Tcl/Tk 8.4 vs 8.5 (or old 8.5 vs new 8.5), because the newer Tcl/Tk 
uses Truetype fonts only, whereas the older ones use non-Truetype fonts 
only, and the Truetype default Courier is rather horrible in terms of 
wasted space (all sizes) and readability (at the default size).
