      The documentation says of Font.getFamily
      "Gets the platform specific family name of the font."
      I assume that this should be something like
      "Times New Roman" or "Ariel" or MS Mincho etc.
      Insted what I get is the Java logical name.
      The following program demonstrates the problem:
      import java.io.*;
      import java.awt.*;


      class t{
          public static void main(String[] argv){
      Font f;

      String[] fontlist = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getFontList();
      System.err.println(fontlist.length+" Fonts defined");

      for (int i = 0; i< fontlist.length; i++) {
      System.err.println("Font "+fontlist[i]);
      f = new Font(fontlist[i],Font.PLAIN,12);
      System.err.println("Family "+f.getFamily());
      System.err.println("Name "+f.getName());
      }
      System.exit(1);
          }
      }
