Fonts available to your operating system should be available in
Mathematica.  If you don't see the font family name on the Format -> Fonts
submenu, try summoning the font chooser dialog by clicking on the menu
command Format -> Choose Font...

Keep in mind that if you wish to share this notebook with others or
transfer it to other machines, using a large variety of unusual fonts may
not be desirable.  If the fonts you specify are not also present on the
user's system, some text may be displayed using some default substitute.
