I just found something in the Java 1.3 javadocs that wasn't in my JFC book
(which must cover 1.2): a createFont method in java.awt.Font, which will
create a Font instance from an InputStream. It appears to only handle
TrueType right now. However, Type 1 fonts can be converted to TrueType.
Since OpenType isn't supported right now, I don't think anyone can complain
that it wouldn't be supported under this scheme. Unless someone thinks the
Type 1 to TrueType conversion is too big of an issue, or has some other
objection, I'll work on this approach. My apologies for using up so much
