Most editors use a catch-all-OS graceful-degrade system for this: 
"arial,helvetica,sans-serif", "courier new,courier,monospace", "times new 
roman,times,serif".

The font families available in the style dialogs are:

- Times
- Hevetica
- Courier

As fonts with these typefaces may not be installed on the target system,
the listed typefaces should be replaced with the generic typeface families:

- serif
- sans-serif
- monospace

or at least:

- Times, serif
- Helvetica, sans-serif
- Courier, monospace

Ideally an advanced dialogue should enable the user to specify any 
font-family.
