      Description



      Name: nl37777 Date: 03/19/2004

      The 2D font architecture redesign changed the definition
      of when "monospaced" should be used for "courier". The old
      implementation used this mapping on Windows only when the default
      encoding was windows-1252 (see
      WFontConfiguration.getFallbackFamilyName). The new implementation
      applies it to all configurations because FontManager.findFont2D does
      not use FontConfiguration.getFallbackFamilyName anymore.

      This change is not necessarily bad, but it needs to be clarified
      whether it's really desirable. If so, it should also apply to AWT,
      where the PlatformFont constructor still calls
      FontConfiguration.getFallbackFamilyName.
