I've played a little with this, and here is what I have (straight from
my config file).
First, I set up the font for variable pitch, and I tell emacs to use it
for text modes.
(set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :family "Ubuntu")
(set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :height 140)
(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'variable-pitch-mode)
Then I set up exceptions for some faces in some modes. I have exceptions
for info, mu4e, and org mode. Here are the ones for org mode.
(defun my-adjoin-to-list-or-symbol (element list-or-symbol)
(let ((list (if (not (listp list-or-symbol))
(cl-adjoin element list)))
(face-attribute face :inherit))))
(list 'org-code 'org-block 'org-table 'org-block-background 'org-date
What this says is: use fixed-pitch for the faces in the list at the
end. I have to include dates, links, and footnotes because I use them in
tables and I don't know how to conditionally change a face (i.e., use
fixed-pitch for links in tables but not for links in other places).
Hopefully this will work for you.
