Following up to myself here for a second. The only default fonts it
can't find are "Helvetica" and "Times". So maybe I just need to know
how I can set font-sans-serif to "Verdana" and font-serif to
Here's my test code, using the list at the mailing list post
as a guide:
view layout [
text "Courier" font-name "Courier"
text "Times" font-name "Times"
text "Helvetica" font-name "Helvetica"
text "Arial" font-name "Arial"
text "Verdana" font-name "Verdana"
text "Georgia" font-name "Georgia"
and "Helvetica" are the only lines that come up blank.
