This is what I'm trying to think about and maybe try something. I can
certainly create a file browser that would let a user find and select a True
Type font. I'm just trying to think of a way that a user doesn't have to try
to figure out where the fonts are stored--or at the very least give them a
reasonable hint to start with. Maybe everyone using Linux knows the path to
the fonts, but I'd wager that most people using Mac's and Windows don't know
