It seems impossible to avoid the space between the d and the variable of a
differential term if the variable is more than just an ascii letter
e.g. "dx" looks right but "d %alpha" or "d vec s" don't

This could only be achieved by lowering the spacing in Format.Spacings. But only
partly, because there's no kerning supported for Greek letters.

We need a way to have the samew distynce between symbols and western text letters.
Reassigned to requirements.

I think the problem is that the "d" is not perceived as an operator-like 
object, but is simply a "d". Perhaps it would be better if there were an 
operator "d", similar to the operator "partial".
