As I recall, in the olden days, no matter what specific styles were included, plain, italic, bold and bold-italic were always styles you could choose, even if the OS had to fudge them. That may still be the case, in which case you would always get those styles.

FontStyles is supposed to give a return-delimited list of styles for a given font and font size (see the dictionary). But when I try it, it always gives me "plain, bold, italic and bold-italic" even when all those style aren't really available. Can someone try it and see what they get?
