OK, this is good to know, but is not documented. So I can use shorter 
names, and don't even have to match the font names in the file, with or 
without hyphens.

And so my problem was inconsistent naming... using hyphens one place and 
spaces another, due to cut-n-paste programming for the font registration 
from (apparently) poor examples.

I had worked out that I needed to be consistent... but what was unclear 
is that there was nothing else that I needed to be consistent _with_.
