      I don't need it, first of all. I also use command-line utilties for dealing with NetInfo.

      However, it would be harder in this case, IMO, to use it. This is the particular data:

      \0 \0\0ProFont\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0 \0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0 \0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0ÿÿÿÿ\0\0\0\08[‹H\0

      My options are to Base64 it and paste it manually, which as shown is pretty trivial, or I'd need to figure out the right hex format to put it in:
      00090000 0750726f 466f6e74 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 ffffffff 00000000 385b8b48 000d9054 00225988 038400a3 f7b40000 00225988 00333002 00000002 00a688b2 000edea8 000ede9c 68fff740 00a688ab 00000000 00080f4c 54455854 74747874 000d9054 88840022 64980303 00a3f7b4 00000022 649e0000 00000008 00a2da00 00810000 00000000 cccccccc cccccccc 00a688ba 409df150 00a2d328 00225652 ffffff00 00225642 40895e96 00a2daa0 ffffff00 00225642
      I preferred the former. It's a lot easier for me to wrap my head around it in the raw text file. Yes, it's hard to imagine why I am a Mac user at all. :-)

      But even if I did use the plist editor, the rest of the steps would have been similar; I'd still need to figure out what format to put the data in, still need to use MacPerl to get the data and put it in that format, etc.
