/ ˈfɑːnt ˈfæməli /
The set of available fonts representing variations of a single typeface. For example, Times Roman and Times Roman Italic are members of the same font family. When the user indicates italic, the system selects the correct italic font for the font family, with its characteristic appearance. If there is no italic font in the family, the system simply slants, or “obliques,” the corresponding roman character. See also italic, roman.
