Trust me, it turns it off.
As I said, there is also a function to choose the desired font.  Use  
it after turning autoface mode off.

It appears on first startup after upgrading, and it is accessible as  
part of the manual.

I just did this, clicked on "Changes-- 1.6" and it brought me straight  
to the list of changes.

Yes, that is a "feature" of the OS X help system.  I'm not fond of  
that feature either.

No.  If someone is interested in implementing that, I think it  
wouldn't be too hard.  The whole manual is available in .tex form, and  
from that I guess it should be possible to translate it to "info"  
files somehow.

Options -> Appearances -> Font

If you like to use the customization interface, customize the  
"default" face (after turning off Autoface).
That's just like in any GNU Emacs.

Hope that helps.
