Does this install a reference to a font file, or does it load the font 
data into the image, making the font file no longer needed?

I need the latter, but it looks like the former might be going on, so I 
thought I'd check.

(I'm not stuck, though, because my old procedure of the following still 
works OK:

description := TTFontDescription addFromTTFile: 
TTCFont newTextStyleFromTT: description first.
TTCFont registerAll.
