Nonstandard fonts for applets

I'm trying to write an applet which needs to use fonts that are not in the standard set of Java fonts - I need Greek, with all the breathing marks and accents. However, Font.getFont() doesn't want me to load any fonts besides the small number of standard fonts.

What can I do?

Well. In standard there are not pleny fonts :((
Here I will give you URL, where can you find classes that defines new fonts and add new features. For example seting rotation, horizontal
 alignment, vertical alignment, character width, charcter height, font line width, italics, and "slant".

Hope this helps
