A GdkFont is a data structure containing
basic information about a font, in terms of its
descent. There is no constructor,
as the fonts available are provided by the system. The
GdkFont structure simply allows a new font to be
loaded and queried.
To load a font, use gdk::font_load() . To load a
fontset - a range of different fonts - use
gdk::fontset_load() . Either function will return
a single GdkFont.
Under win32 currently, all fonts are of the type
GDK_FONT_FONTSET, regardless of the loading method.
