How to figure out font file from font name
Acrobat Reader tells me that a certain (PdfTeX generated)
PDF file contains the following fonts:
SFSS0900, SFSX1728, SFRM1000, SFTI1000, SFRM1095
I would like to know to what actual font files these rather
terse names happen to refer to. How can I figure that out?
(I cannot find any font files with these names in my own
TeX font tree, but that is perhaps simply because I do not,
at present, have these particular fonts installed on my

I want: the font file name such as "arialbd.ttf" (for Arial bold)

I've noticed that both values are listed in the font directories in a

some XLib API call which does that for me? XListFonts only returns me
matching XLFDs, given a certain XLFD which is is not what I want.

What was the question? Oh, you wrote it only in the Subject and
forgot to ask in the body of your posting.
The PostScript name is stored in the 'name' table.

I'm trying to determine if you have to create a font for each version
and size of the font being used.
Ie. Do I have to create seperate fonts for:
Courier New, Bold, size 8 and Courier New, italics, size 8 or can I
just create one for Courier New size 8 and it recognize it?
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

A sample would likely be very helpful for font identification. I have
access to some of the DVDs, so I'll see if I can get a frame grab...

I am a newbie using Latex for writing my thesis. I have no clue how to
change the .sty or .cls files as I am using others templates, (.sty
files) directly on Winedt and editing them with my text. I use a
document class: report.The chapter font size in the beginning page of
each chapter has a large
font size. Is there a way I can reduce this font size to12?
Also in the table of contents page the dots dont extend to the page
numbers for the chapters and main headings. Only subsections etc.,
have dots extending to page numbers. Any help on this?
