|(Declarations)||Declarations||Declarations and private variables for the modFonts module.|
|IsFontInstalled||Procedure||Determine if a font name is installed on the Windows Operating system.|
|GetFonts||Procedure||Enumerate the fonts installed on a system, returning the list of fonts in the array.|
|EnumFontFamProc||Procedure||This function should never be called directly by user code. It is used as a callback function for the Windows API EnumFontFamilies function. See the Windows SDK for more documentation on this procedure.|
|ConvertScale||Procedure||Converts between pixels, twips and points.|
|HeightToPoints||Procedure||Convert a font height to a font point size. The font height is measured in logical device units. Most windows API functions for dealing with fonts require the font height in logical units. This function only works correctly in the MM_TEXT mapping mode.|
|PointsToHeight||Procedure||Convert a font point size to a font height. The font height is measured in logical device units. Most windows API functions for dealing with fonts require the font height in logical units. This function only works correctly in the MM_TEXT mapping mode.|
