Will this show what face is being used at point?
Yes (although you may need to configure it to do so). As I say, it's
an object browser. The proof-of-concept application is a configurable
tooltip that pops up telling you all about point (the stuff that C-x =
tells you, for example, plus information about extents, faces, etc.)
Although perhaps my problem is a bug in setting faces. When I'm
Gnus, I want to use a different default face (Bitstream Vera Mono).
Setting the default face causes many to change, but not all.
The problem is that legacy X11, and therefore XEmacs, doesn't have a
concept of font family, really. So when you change the font of the
default face, that does not change bold or italic.
Xft allows us to do better but it's not implemented yet.
