Hi Lou,

An operating system has both physical fonts and logical fonts. A logical 
font can map various parts of its range to various other physical fonts:

Oxygen is a Java application and it has access to an array of fonts, 
some logical (like "Monospaced" and "Serif") and other physical.
So "Monospaced" probably uses a variety of physical fonts for various 
character range intervals. But as an application running on top of this 
abstraction we do not really know how the operating system combines 
ranges for a monospaced font.
