I would like to specify a particular font in a Text expression within 
a graphic. The call looks something like:

Text[StyleForm["VISION", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontFamily -> "Apple 
Chancery", FontSize -> 48] , {0, .5}, {-1, 0}]

Given a font on the Apple Mac like "Apple Chancery" (as it is named 
in the Fomat->Font menu), how do I specify that font? It doesn't work 
as written above. I get some generic font.


PS: I have rtfm.
