Most of the font-related stuff is actually handled by the editing
component called Scintilla.

From the documentation:

"On GTK+ 2.x, either GDK or Pango can be used to display text. Pango
antialiases text, works well with Unicode and is better supported in
recent versions of GTK+ but GDK is faster. Prepend a '!' character to
the font name to use Pango."
