      Description

      Consider the scenario where the fontFamily style property value for a component is set to one of the three device fonts, such as:

      fontFamily: "_serif";

      I understand that Flash Player will use the font on the client's local computer most closely resembling the device font that is specified. There doesn't appear to be a programmatic method to query what specific font is selected by Flash Player on the client system. This request is for such a method that can be called at runtime with a String argument that returns the font name on the client system that would be used to display the String.
