Indeed, SetCurrentConsoleFontEx() is available from Mistda and Server 2008
onwarts. You can only query it in earlier versions. I wonder why…

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-

detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
