Font question, which Courier?

As far as I've been able to tell, Courier New is more widely  
available than the others. Unfortunately, on Mac -- mine at least --  
as compared with Courier, Courier New is annoyingly light, as in the  
opposite of bold; it looks pale when you put it beside text in other  
fonts. I ended up using an if-block to choose:

   if "Courier" is among the lines of the fontNames then
     put "Courier" into tNewMonoFont
     put "Courier New" into tNewMonoFont
   end if
   . . .
   set the textFont of someStack to tNewMonoFont
   . . .
