    Default Java fonts

    Hey,

    In Java, I don't like the fonts provided by the Font class. What can I do to use Courier as it is in MS paint?

    If that is not possible, how might I go about creating a custom font?

    I suggest checking Oracle's Font Class page as it provides a lot of information. Search that page for getAllFonts which could help out as well. Also, this Physical and Logical Fonts page gives some more information.
