What I am doing: Font f = new Font(typeface, style, size);
My Problem: I am having a hard time finding all the type faces that Java will understand(ex: Serif, Helvetica ?). I only know a couple. Where do I find this information? All I need is a list of 7-10 typeface names if anybody knows them. Thanks.
Hi Thomas, Here is an excerpt from the API docs on Font: Logical fonts are the five font families defined by the Java platform which must be supported by any Java runtime environment: Serif, SansSerif, Monospaced, Dialog, and DialogInput. Here is a simple app to list all font families on a particular system:

Thanks for the reply Michael. I had read something about the Graphics Environment thing. I forgot that I would need to check each persons system to see the kinds of fonts available. I think for my purposes I will use the font families that are supported on all Machines.
