<< Last night I looked at the raw binary on a couple of fonts. The name is
there, but I wasn't readily able to identify a constant location nor a
bracketing pair of words or symbols that would make parsing easy. (It wasn't
obvious *to me*, at least.) >>
The format is available (wotsit has a link to it), but I don't think it will
be a 5 minute job. There is a table directory you would use to find the name
table, then get the name out of that. Also, everything is big-endian. I've
done this kind of thing a bit, and since it might actually work cross
platform (anywhere TTF fonts are used), I'd be willing to spend a little
time on it if people feel there is a lot of vale to be had from it. I.e.
I'll tackle the TTF parsing bit if others want to handle the requestor, file
finder, list-builder parts.
