    This seems more logical than the roman fonts (bold and slanted) now
    being used, although the roman fonts are prettier and take less space.

That sounds like a substantial change for the worse.  Taking up more
space may cause ugly breaks in some manuals.  Let's consider other

One other alternative is to use a fixed width font but slightly
smaller than the roman font now used.  That might use little or no
extra space.  It would have a drawback too, in reducing the visibility
of the function name, but it still could be better overall than using
a fixed width font of the same size.

Do you know of people who are sensitive that you could ask for advice?
