Java provides support for text rendering. Out of the box, Java provides a small set of fonts, specified by logical font names. These logical fonts are not actual font libraries that are installed anywhere on your system, but rather merely font-type names recognized by the Java runtime system. Although these logical fonts are guaranteed to be available on every platform, they are not guaranteed to look the same on every platform. Obviously, this seems like a severe limitation and because of this limitation, Java also allows an application to use any font installed on the native system and refer to that font by its physical font name, instead of a logical font name.

Find out where on your system these font libraries are located. When you do, please specify the operating system and the location (folder/directory) where you found them. What were some of the fonts that you found on your system?

Also, feel free to discuss Java’s ability to derive new fonts from existing ones.
