There may be up to three methods to state type style. As a tuple whose primary element is the font family, followed by a dimension in points, optionally followed by a cord-containing one or additional of the style modifiers bold, italic, underline and overstrike.
You can create a "font object" by importing the tkFont module and using its Font class constructor:
import tkFont font = tkFont.Font ( option, ... )
Here is the list of options -
helv36 = tkFont.Font(family="Helvetica",size=36,weight="bold")
If you are running under the X Window System, you can use any of the X font names.
For example, the font named "-*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-*-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-*-*" is the author's favorite fixed-width font for onscreen use. Use the xfontsel program to help you select pleasing fonts.
