Hi Alexei.

I set the default font to "Times New Roman", but there are still cases
where XEP tries to use Helvetica, even though I don't use Helvetica in
any code. The only way I can stop XEP from using Helvetica is to
comment out the Helvetica font-family in xep.xml. Then XEP will still
issue a warning that it is trying to use Helvetica, but as it is not
found the "Times New Roman" font is used.

Here is the warning from XEP:
   [warning] could not find any font family matching "Helvetica";
replaced by Times New Roman

<fonts xmlns=""
         default-family="Times New Roman">
