Can someone confirm (or not) that when setting the fontname for a text input control on mobile, that we have to use the Postscript name of the font?

mobileControlSet controlID, “fontname”, FontPostscriptName

I had somehow thought this was being handled automatically for us, but if it’s not, anyone come up with a good way of handling it (other than just keeping our own mapping table for font names in our app)?
