It seems that a few of these iTunes fonts (where-ever they come from;  
I did install them at one stage) have this ugly name.

I thought that fonts could be chosen with their postscript name as  
well, but I appear to be mistaken about that. This would have solved  
the problem easily, but not necessarily nicely.

I like this a lot; it's similar to those weird (LaTeX3 terminology)  
TeX commands like \hrule...
