I go to Format -> Edit Stylesheet ..., and I choose the "Input" style to 
modify.  The default appears to be Times, even though input cells are in 
Courier.  I try to make it bold or italic---it works.  Then I try to 
change the font to e.g. Arial, but nothing happens.

First I thought that there might be some limitation on changing the 
fonts for input cells because of the special characters that are only 
present in the fonts supplied with Mathematica.

But it turns out that this is not the case: the modifications *do* 
affect all those cells which are set to be displayed as TraditionalForm, 
but not those set to StandardForm.

Is there a simple way to change the font for StandardForm/InputForm as well?
