Hi to all,
I asked to the list how to know which font are installed on my machine.
The reply was that I cannot guess this info from inside tex, but it  
should be possible to grasp information starting form the distro I use.

(I'm using TeXShop, with Gerben distro on macosx)

So, I was tinkering: can anyone suggest a list of widely used font name  
so that at least I can try to call them from inside ConTeXt and see if  
they are present or not?
I was lucky with Palatino, as an example.

Thanks to all
