How Does One Tell which {Font}s One Can Use?

How does one tell which {Font}s one can use on one's machine? There's a {Font} constructor that takes as arguments a {String} and two {int}s. How does one determine what the legal values are for the {String} parameter?

Additionally, if you need a Font that has glyphs for any but the most common characters, you can use the (IMHO rather badly named) canDisplayUpTo(...) method.

luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
