Hi, Gabriele, From: "Gabriele Santilli"

Last night I looked at the raw binary on a couple of fonts. The name is in 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.)
>(Are TTF specs available?)
If they are, then perhaps it would be possible to parse out the names. Good idea! Thanks for the feedback. And BTW to Carl and Gregg: I forgot to mention, that it appears as though one can use *any* installed font as long as one uses the "proper" font name. This is ***good news***. (Warning: I only tried a few.) --Scott Jones
