Function: NSFontManager is the center of activity for the font conversion system.
// pick some font
dim n1 as NSFontMBS = nsfontmbs.fontWithName("Book Antiqua bold", 12)
dim fm as new NSFontManagerMBS

// remove all font traits
dim n2 as NSFontMBS = fm.convertFontToNotHaveTrait(n1, fm.traitsOfFont(n1))

// show name of base font
MsgBox n2.fontName
It records the currently selected font, updates the Font panel and Font menu to reflect the selected font, initiates font changes, and converts fonts in response to requests from text-bearing objects. In a more prosaic role, NSFontManager can be queried for the fonts available to the application and for the particular attributes of a font, such as whether it's condensed or extended.

As of Mac OS X version 10.3, font collections are managed by NSFontManager.
