As far as I know, all recent X systems have lucida fonts.
They are included even in Open Windows of SunOS 4.1.2.

I still prefer asterisks of such fixed-width fonts as 6x13,
7x13, and those included in intlfonts.  They display
asterisks at the middle or near the middle of lines, which
very well harmonize with `-' and `%' at `mode-line-modified'
part of the modeline..

So, ideally, it seems good to me to use lucida for the face
`mode-line', but use the default font only for
