Hi Mike -

Fonts aren't quite as intuitive (or maybe we're both just set in our
ways) as in GIMP-1.2.x, but here's how it works:

1.  Double click on the text tool in the toolbox.  This will give you
the tool's own dialog box, where you can set the font, the size, the
color, and the alignment of the text you enter.
When you click on the selector button at the right of the font name, you
will get a dialog box with the six dozen liquor jugs text.  There you
can set the font style, if there are any variants.

2.  Click in the image window.  This will pop up an entry box where you
can enter your desired text, also selecting left-to-right or
right-to-left directionality.  

I think 1.3.x puts a whole lot of controls in the tools' own control
panels.  Once you've opened a single tool control panel, though, it will
reflect the controls for whatever tool is active.
