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. -- P.J.
