Basically we are limited to whatever fonts are currently installed on the
machine that is running our programs, since Revolution does not (at this
time) support font embedding... this means that if you want to have a
specific font in use in your program, you will need to confirm that the user
has it installed (check 'the fontnames' property), or install it yourself
(assuming that it is OK for you to do so) as part of your overall
As to antialiasing, Revolution doesn't do anything about this - the OSes
themselves implement font smoothing at certain point sizes or larger, and
this is reflected in Rev as much as in Word...
