      Description

      Customer (FutureTense) product needs to be able to access wide variety of fonts
      on the system. Currently, the runtime matches any provided font name against
      one of a handful of well-known fonts; anything else is mapped into a Helvetica-like
      font.

      This limitation makes it impossible to do any kind of sophisticated document
      authoring and/or viewing in a Java applet.

      Customer has been working around this problem with sources to the runtime by
      allowing the system (win32) to check for existance of named font before defaulting,
      but this is obviously not a viable solution for their final product.
