i know, i know. i didn't pay for this - so can't complain
but when i reported this - i had a mis-configured system.
when i asked who the fonts weren't controlled by the UI, i was told that 
this was deliberate - as the font was tied to the OSD
i only found this out after trying (and failing) to change the font with 
the UI to work around this problem.

feeling rather sick to discover that the font is at fault
but then again - i shouldn't complain as myth is (to a very great 
extent) wonderful.
