There are some lingering font issues from the 1990's (unbelievable).
Sometimes a font families are combined sometime not. And sometimes the name
is slightly different. Here's a function to enumerate all fonts and their

function FontInfo
   local fnames,fstyles,tlist
   put the fontnames into fnames
   sort fnames
   repeat for each line tfnt in fnames
      put "*"&tfnt&cr after tlist
      put the fontstyles(tfnt,0) into  fstyles
      repeat for each line tsty in fstyles
         put space & tsty & cr after tlist
      end repeat
   end repeat
   delete char -1 in tlist
   return tlist
end FontInfo

Does that you don't have to "code/script" to access the fonts?

Just putting them there  (copy files)  makes them available?

Thanks, I was hoping that was the case. So it's a dictionary error. Good.
