Is it really INSTALLED? An available in other Windows programs?

Because you can not just copy a font to the fonts directory, the must
be installed (and they even don't have to be located in the font
directory when they have been installed).

I use a program called The Font Thing to help me install and uninstall
fonts depending on when I need them. I have all my "non-Windows" fonts
in a separate directory (so I don't accidentily uninstall a font
needed by the system).
