apostolo at nadya>> fc-list | grep Minion
Minion Pro:style=Bold Italic
Minion Pro,Minion Pro SmBd:style=Semibold,Regular
Minion Pro:style=Regular
Minion Pro,Minion Pro Cond:style=Cond Italic,Italic
Minion Pro,Minion Pro SmBd Cond:style=Semibold Cond Italic,Italic
Minion Pro,Minion Pro Cond:style=Cond,Regular
Minion Pro:style=Italic
Minion Pro,Minion Pro SmBd Cond:style=Semibold Cond,Regular
Minion Pro:style=Bold
Minion Pro,Minion Pro Cond:style=Bold Cond,Bold
Minion Pro,Minion Pro Cond:style=Bold Cond Italic,Bold Italic
