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.
