Answer: Yes. The strings are XmStrings. Each one can be created using a
different character set using a different font.

If a string is added to the listbox, the font in the listbox overrides the
font set using XmCreateString.  The Command widget label retains the font set
using XmCreateString.  I read in the MOTIF FAQ that it is possible to add
strings with multiple fonts to the listbox.  I learned from one of the tech
support persons that internal code of the listbox overrides the font.

Madhusudan Poolu (madhu@corp.sgi.com) replied:

You need to create a fontlist for your font and  add it to your listbox widget
using XtVaSetValues ( wList, XmNfontList, yourFontList, NULL).  This technique
can also be used to display multi-font strings in a list box.
