choose_font: Choose an installed font from a list

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

Description

For a sequence of font family names, return the first one installed on the system. This makes it easy for code to specify a preferred font-family, but fall back to other font families if that is not installed on the system. This function acts much like the CSS font-family property.
