Sorry, I didn't ask the question precisely enough.  I can get the Impact 
font in a text cell just fine.  But I want to use the "Impact" font in 
Graphics.  For example,

Show[Graphics[Text["Illumitech", {0, 0}, TextStyle -> {FontFamily -> 
"Impact", FontSize -> 24}]]]

Unfortunately the output of this line doesn't look like the Impact font, it 
appears to substitute Helvetica.  Thanks.
