basically it's like this:

put the fontNames into theCompare
answer file ""
if it = "" then
  exit to top
end if
put it into thePath
revFontLoad thePath
if the fontNames <> theCompare then
  answer "success!"
  revFontUnload thePath 
  --not unloading before quitting your app can lead to crashes
  --depending on the version of LC/Rev you use
  answer ":("
end if

now some fonts don't work, depending on the type of fontfile. if your font doesn't work, try to use a font format convertor to convert to a different type of font.

Is there a step-by-step explanation anywhere (for dummies), or a turorial (for dummies?) I simply want to avoid making a user install the font.
