Confusing inconsistencies in syntax make Mathematica (or any other 
software program) hard to use.

For example, I can say

   Graphics[ { Thickness[--], Dashing[--], Line[--], Line[--] } ]

So why can't I say

   Graphics[ { FontWeight[--], FontSize[--], Text[--], Text[--] } ]

or something akin to this?
