CARIS Font Definition File

This file contains a human-readable list of font descriptors.  The file that comes with the SICOM installation contains four basic fonts:

The file contains basic descriptions for each of these, plus descriptions for bold, italic, and combined bold and italic versions of the first three.  The developer may edit this file and add other fonts that are to be supported.  Simply follow the format shown for the existing entries and make sure that each font descriptor begins with a unique font number and do not use numbers between 0 and 20, as these are reserved.
