What you are looking for is either Pango markup:


or text attributes (specifically the font related attributes):


Both allow you to change the font of a specified range of text, the
difference is that markup is simply text fragments inserted in the
string given to the layout while attributes are applied after the text
has been set to given character indexes. The markup in fact is
converted to attributes by pango, so usually attributes are the way to
go. At least in C where string handling sucks, on python for example
it's another story.
