There are {BIG_FONT} and {TINY_FONT} control codes but no {NORMAL_FONT} or something.
So it's only possible to use normal font at the beginning of the string.
This task depends upon

The text renderer also does not support different font sizes in the same text.

Really? Looks fine to me. That's also why I marked it as bug since it doesn't seem to be intended.

Made a pretty straightforward patch that adds {NORMAL_FONT} and {MONO_FONT} control codes, seems to work ok even in weird combinations.
Also attached simple gs for testing that just shows popup message.
