I want to change font properties for just a single sentence (or
paragraph), and after googling I came up with
The quick brown fox jumps over the sleazy dog.
where FONTNAMEABBR is the abbreviation of the font family that I want to
use, for example, cmr for Computer Modern Roman, phv for Helvetica etc.
I have two questions:
1. Where can I find a comprehensive list of font families together with
samples AND abbreviations? I found the following list with nice sample
but I dont know how I can use these fonts because there is nothing about
2. How do I know the font I want to use is already installed in my
system and that I can use it?
FYI, I use 10.5.6 with MacTex 2008 (full package).
