Description
Its aking about 50ms to locate "Tahoma" because of the time taken mostly
in platform APIs and the windows registry. This is WAY better than JDK 1.5
was but we can do better in some known common cases.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

For the most common UI fonts, if we hard code the locations, we can bypass
windows APIs until a less common font is used.
