Typically a WP will give you font name and B I U options etc. They will often 
create fake versions of the fonts. Scribus does not do that at all and leaves 
you to select the actual versions of what you have installed.

My plans are to have a font name selector, a weight and slant selector, 
probably all comboboxes. Names can be separated out, and the weights and 
slants will be filled with Bold/Bolder/Thin/Condensed etc Italic/Oblique/etc 
of the versions you have installed. There are plenty of options and nothing 
is set in stone.

These changes are waiting on other font work and while I made a working 
prototype for this in December or January, I'm waiting for some more progress 
on that side before continuing.
